CLASSICAL OPUS no.70

Tomaso Albinoni (?): “Adagio in G Minor”

トマソ・アルビノーニ:「アダリオ・イン・G  マイナー」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 9 minutes

This dramatized, almost illogically poignant passage exudes deep sorrow only to hug us with its tuneful consolation.  Albinoni bequeathed a three-movement, fast-slow-fast concerto structure and is also considered the Godfather of oboe concertos.  But this professionally unattached Venetian dilettante may have never seen this Adagio as we know it today.  The score was allegedly reconstructed from Dresden’s ruins by Remo Giazotto.  Hopefully for fraud lovers, this is closer to an okapi than to a unicorn.

A REFLECTION

Don’t worry about watering the flowers—

In fact, don’t plant them.

You will have gone back home before they bloom,

And who will want them?
