Music in the Morning No. 436 – Giazotto & Albinoni

 

This morning’s music was written almost exclusively in the 1950s by Remo Giazotto based upon a tiny manuscript fragment (consisting of a few opening measures of the melody line and basso continuo portion) from a slow second movement of an otherwise unknown Albinoni trio sonata. 

The result is simply breath-taking.

Adagio in G Minor                                                         Giazotto and Albinoni

 

Genius from the 18th and 20th centuries combined to bring us a timeless piece.
