Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni (8 June 1671 – 17 January 1751) was an Italian Baroque composer. While famous in his day as an opera composer, he is known today for his instrumental music, especially his concertos. He is also remembered today for a work called "Adagio in G minor", supposedly written by him, but probably written by Remo Giazotto, a modern musicologist and composer, who was a cataloguer of the works of Albinoni.

Here are Albinoni's Oboe Concertos, which provide a marvellous listening experience for lovers of Baroque music.

  1. I went to a funeral this month where the cellist and pianist played only a part of the Adagio. Which is a good thing because the damn thing destroys me.

  2. Thank you for more great info.... Michelle
