Ο Βενετσιάνος συνθέτης του μπαρόκ Tomaso Albinoni [1671 – 1751] διάσημος στην εποχή του περισσότερο ως συνθέτης όπερας, είναι σήμερα περισσότερο γνωστός για ένα έργο που, πιθανώς, δεν είναι καν δικό του: ο διακεκριμένος μουσικολόγος του 20ου αιώνα Remo Giazotto [φωτό] δημοσίευσε αρχικά το Adagio σαν άγνωστη παρτιτούρα του Albinoni, για να διεκδικήσει στη συνέχεια την πατρότητα της σύνθεσης.
Ακούμε το Adagio του Remo “Albinoni” Giazotto, ένα κονσέρτο του
Albinoni για oboe και το τραγούδι στο οποίο μετέτρεψαν το Adagio οι Renaissance – από το άλμπουμ τους Turn Of The Cards.

The Venetian baroque composer Tomaso Albinoni [1671 – 1751] famous in his time mainly as an opera composer, is now best known for a work that is probably not even his own: the distinguished 20th-century musicologist Remo Giazotto [photo] originally published Adagio as an unknown score of Albinoni, to then claim the fatherhood of the composition.
We hear Remo “Albinoni” Giazotto’s Adagio, an
Albinoni concerto for oboe, and the song in which Renaissance turned Adagio – from their album Turn Of The Cards. Also, check out this older post:

On the podcast: 0:00 Cold Is Being 3:05 Oboe Concerto In G Minor, Op. 9/8 – 1. Allegro 7:32 2. Adagio 10:12 3. Allegro 14:21 Adagio In G Minor

So cold is being lonely
Behold the feeling lonely
The living part is done
The dying has begun
The world is spinning slow
So tired slow
So cold is being sadness
Behold the feeling sadness
Oh how can we believe
We earn what we receive
The pain it overflows
Lord won’t you help us realise
See through your eyes
Within our lives
The earth grows old
The earth grows cold
So cold is being tired
Behold the feeling tired
Stand quietly at the side
Watch darkness open wide
The light is growing dim
So dim within
