    Albinoni, Tomaso Giovanni (8th June 1671-17th January 1751)  

    He was a Baroque composer born in Venice, Italy to a wealthy family.  His father was a paper merchant.  He studied singing and the violin and although not a lot is known about his early life it is thought that he may have been employed by the Duke of Mantua, Fernando Carlo, who was a violinist that he dedicated his Opus 2 to.   He achieved acclaim as an opera composer throughout Italy as well as writing instrumental music, and the first Italian oboe concertos, prolifically.  As he had independent means he never sought employment at a court or in the church and in 1722 the Elector of Bavaria, who he had dedicated a set of concertos to, invited him to Munich to direct his own operas.  After 1740 it seems that he lived in obscurity in Venice having successfully published so many of his works that had brought him so much acclaim as a younger man.  His compositions include 50 operas, 12 ballets, 40 cantatas, 59 concerti, 79 sonatas and his most famous piece, Adagio in G, that was not discovered until after WWII and reconstructed by Remo Giazotto in 1949.   His compositions have appeared regularly on countless films and television programmes.  He died in the parish of San Barnaba, Venice , when he was 79.
