Tune of the Day: Adagio in A minor by Albinoni
from “Trattenimenti armonici”
No, this is not that Adagio by Albinoni, which by the way is not by Albinoni at all. (The infamous Adagio in G minor was composed by Remo Giazotto in 1958, and is still subject to copyright.) Instead, this is an actual Baroque composition, the third movement of an A-minor sonata written by Tomaso Albinoni around 1712.
