The World's most beautiful music: The Albinoni Adagio in G minor

>> Saturday, April 5, 2008

Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni (June 8, 1671, Venice, Republic of Venice – January 17, 1751, Venice, Republic of Venice) was a Venetian Baroque composer. While famous in his day as an opera composer, he is mainly remembered today for his instrumental music, some of which is regularly recorded. The "Adagio in G minor" attributed to him (actually a later reconstruction) is one of the most frequently recorded pieces of Baroque music.

Featured here is the Berlin Philharmonic. This one is lengthy, but oh so worth it!

Such a beautiful piece of music. We wrote a blog post about this on - the 'discovery' by Giazotto of the scrap of paper in the aftermath of the Dresden bombing is a great story. Not sure how true it is, though!
