Adagio in G minor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Adagio in G minor for violin, strings, and organcontinuo is a neo- Baroque composition popularly attributed to the 1. Venetian master Tomaso Albinoni, but actually composed by 2. Albinoni biographer Remo Giazotto, purportedly based on the discovery of a manuscript fragment by Albinoni. ProvenanceThe composition is often referred to as "Albinoni's Adagio" or "Adagio in G minor by Albinoni, arranged by Giazotto", but the attribution is incorrect. The ascription to Albinoni rests upon Giazotto's purported discovery of 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. According to Giazotto, he obtained the document shortly after the end of World War II from the Saxon State Library in Dresden which had preserved most of its collection, though its buildings were destroyed in the bombing raids of February and March 1.
British and American Air Forces. Giazotto concluded that the manuscript fragment was a portion of a church sonata (sonata da chiesa, one of two standard forms of the trio sonata) in G minor composed by Albinoni, possibly as part of his Op. In his account, Giazotto then constructed the balance of the complete single- movement work based on this fragmentary theme. He copyrighted it and published it in 1. English, reads "Adagio in G Minor for Strings and Organ, on Two Thematic Ideas and on a Figured Bass by Tomaso Albinoni". Giazotto never produced the manuscript fragment, and no official record has been found of its presence in the collection of the Saxon State Library.Musicologist Muska Mangano, Giazotto's last assistant, claimed to have discovered a modern but independent manuscript transcription of the figured bass portion and six fragmentary bars of the first violin, "bearing in the top right- hand corner a stamp stating unequivocally the Dresden provenance of the original from which it was taken". The scholarly consensus is that the Adagio is Giazotto's composition, whatever source may have inspired him. The piece is most commonly orchestrated for string ensemble and organ, or string ensemble alone, but with its growing fame has been transcribed for other instruments.
