Biographical note:
!"#$%" '()*+"+*, oldest son oI a wealthy paper
merchant, was born in Venice in 1671. At an early age
he became proIicient as a singer and, more notably, as a
violinist, soon turning his hand to composition. Until his
Iather's death in 1709, he was able to cultivate music
more Ior pleasure than Ior proIit, reIerring to himselI as
'dilettante, - a term which in 18th century Italy was
totally devoid oI unIavorable connotations. Under the
terms oI his Iather's will he was relieved oI the duty
(which he would normally have assumed as oldest son)
to take charge oI the Iamily business, and this task
devolved on to his younger brothers. HenceIorth he was
to be a Iull-time musician, who according to one report,
at one time ran a successIul academy oI singing. He
resided in Venice all his liIe, though visits to Florence
(1703) and Munich (1722) are recorded. AIter a long
period oI inactivity he died in 1751.
In his youth Albinoni Ilirted unsuccessIully with the
composition oI church music. He Iirst came to public
notice as a composer when, in 1694, his Iirst opera,
'Zenobia, regina de Palmireni, was produced in Venice
and his Iirst collection oI instrumental music ('Sonata a
tre, op.1) appeared. ThereaIter he divided his attention
almost equally between vocal composition (operas,
serenatas and cantatas) and instrumental composition
(sonatas and concertos). His vocal music circulated only
in manuscript, apart Irom twelve cantatas published in
1702 as his op.4 and one cantata that appeared
elsewhere, and was comparatively little known outside
Italy. His instrumental music (108 works published as
op. 1-3 and 5-10, plus 17 works published in
unauthorized; collections and about 50 authenticated
works remaining in manuscript) enjoyed a vogue in
northern Europe, particularly through the activity oI
publishing houses in Amsterdam and London.
The Albinonis Adagio
This peace is based on a Iragment oI manuscript
discovered in the Dresden State Library aIter the Second
World War by Remo Giazotto, a Milanese musicologist
who was at that time completing his biography oI
Albinoni and his listing oI Albinoni's music. Only the
bass line and six bars oI melody had survived, possibly
Irom the slow movement oI a Trio Sonata. Giazotto
"reconstructed" the now-Iamous Adagio in about 1945,
based on the surviving Iragment.
