Classical Fact

Albinoni's famous G minor Adagio is viewed in music history through a veil of controversy. Shortly after World War II, the Italian musicologist, Remo Giazotto came across a tiny manuscript fragment in a library in Dresden. Giazotto believed he had found a portion of a sonata, which he presumed had been composed by Albinoni. Giazotto constructed a complete single-movement work based on his findings. New recordings of the work are released almost every year.
