Tomaso Albinoni

June 8, 1671 - January 17, 1751
born in Venice, Italy, composed during the Baroque period
Italian composer Tomaso Albinoni (1671-1751) is best known for the Adagio for strings and organ, a work he did not write, not even in part. The real Albinoni was an amateur composer and an important figure in the development of the concerto and an influence on Antonio Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach. During his lifetime, Albinoni was known for his work in opera, composing some 80 operas, though only two now survive. He turned professional after the Albinoni family playing card business went bankrupt, and he was renowned as an opera coach. His most famous authentic work is the "San Marco" Concerto. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

Comments

My favorite piece is his Concerto for Oboe in D minor.
so who wrote the adagio?
smcalles
The bio should be edited or rewritten altogether. It detracts w/o adding any real information. Did Uncle Dave really write it or can it be attributed to someone else?
Albinoni's elegant music has the grandeur of Handel and the brightness of Vivaldi.
rpruitt661
This is beautiful... m a k e s me a little sad though. Thought provoking...
bobe4
What's with the bio? So who is the real Albinoni?? What's HIS name? And if Thomaso is not the real Albinoni, what did Thomaso write? NUTS!!
lv2fly7
This does sound like something from one of the Bachs
rpruitt661
Lovely...enc h a n t i n g . . . r e s t f u l
The Doors set some of Jim's poetry to this on an album I think..
This is perfect music
So beautiful! I can listen to this all day long.
dk636
Quite enjoyable
dinhkhanh77
So lovely made me sleep well
This piece has a beautiful structure to it.. I LOVE IT. Now adding it as one of the favorites!!
judith7822
good bio, Uncle Dave. Thanks.
Love the fast presto Violins, oboe's. LOVE THEM!!!
Shame that Albinoni keeps getting the credit. A moving piece of music
Is not BACH But is a wonderful melody! Whoever wrotte!!!!!
I like the oldies but the Baroque period is a little before my time
aecdesign200 3
If Uncle Dave Lewis wants to make provenance declarations , he should document them.
I think it is telling that Albinoni is considered an important figure in the development of the concerto and an influence on Antonio Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach. Forget the erroneous compositiona l attribution: Albinoni made Bach and Vivaldi sit up and take notice! If the measure of success is the regard of one's peers, Albinoni is nonpareil indeed.
It's written by Remo Giazotto, or stolen (arranged) by Remo Giazotto from Albinoni. We'll never know.
If this has been known for some time, one would think that there would not be so many works out there with his name on them. Maybe this claim is sort of like the Shakespeare didn't write the works of Shakespeare claim?
tlafargue2
ditto ?
So who wrote it? Did I miss something? O_O
Sounds like Bach.
alankarls
It is ironic to play the adagio for strings and organ, attribute it to Albinoni, and have copy say that he didn't write it.
It would be nice of Pandora to fill us in on exactly what Albinoni did write...
My baby sleeps to this. She loves and and it grew on me.
lyndaj4u
this is the piece that was played by the cellist in sarajevo in defense of those that were killed. strange to learn that Albioni didn't write it...Who did?
I love Albinoni!
Sad to hear he didn't write the famous Adagio piece. He is no Bach, but enjoyable nonetheless.
jimhempler
This trumpet version makes my lifelong cornet playing lips wish they could match this superb quality. Go Pandora!
Stokes my soul...old, deep, eternal
Uplifting, inspiring, magnificent.
I really enjoyed this - like all really great music, it spoke to my heart.
bottlorain
So I am confused, who wrote this work then? And why does the bio say it isn't Albinoni's and then list the artist as Albinoni?
mike.roman
I belong to a professional business association of armed service veterans. Although I am not a proponent of armed conflict, there are times when it is necessary. The lesson this teaches can be summarized by a simple statement that applies to all areas of life. Here is our mantra:

For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the protected do not understand.

The fight for an artist mirrors this statement.
Too many eight-measur e phrases and parallel periods in the pieces he actually wrote. Excessive regularity has a sing-songy square dance effect that I turn to classical music to escape.
johnhmcneely
What wonderful music. My dream would be to discover more of his instrumental music lost somewhere. What a shame so much was lost due to war. What an incredible understandin g of the Oboe.
deanthattatt o o g u y
Elvis played other's songs. Nothing's new. It all rocks.
gbrown516
I was part of a handbell choir that played this piece on Easter Sunday. What a unique experience it was. A gorgeous piece of music.
homeloft
I agree: I don't care who wrote it, it's wonderful.
Remo Giazotto is the composer of this wonderful work. He was researching for his "Tomaso Albinoni, 'musico violino dilettante veneto' (1671-1750), which was subsequently published in Milan, 1945, when he came across a scrap of manuscript by Albinoni while in the Saxon State Library in Dresden, Germany.
The city of Dresden was the location of a fierce firebombing in late WW2 and all but 2 of Albinoni's operas were destroyed, yet Giazotto claims he found a torn and tattered peice of a manuscript
Well, even if he didn't compose this work it is nice. RIP who ever did compose it.
It is hard to conceive that we are here now so technilogica l l y advanced while so long ago such intense talent and thought was put into so much! Just proves to me that we need to appreciate the simpler ways as obviously although times were harsh in different ways times were slower allowing for such talent to develop and live! Albinoni lived a long life for that time and I'm glad I stumbled upon his works.
fwrandall3
A composer who deserves more attention and appreciation than he gets. I was delighted when I discovered his music. He is one of my favorite composers.
Albinoni is right up there with Bach, Vivaldi, and Telemann as a great Baroque composer. If you're a baroque nut like me, this man should be part of your playlist.
