    Albinoni - Adagio in G minor

    Hi,

    Does anyone know where I can lay my hands on a copy of this music?.
    It's been requested last minute for a Wedding and all copies that I can find on the net are shipping in 4-6 working days which is too late.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Cheers

    Yep - me too ... Bride's choice for signing the register.
    It's actually a refreshing change to have someone pick some music - normally they just say 'oh, play whatever you want really' ... one of these days I'll play the theme from Match of the Day for them.

    Hey there Jonesey!! - long time no see, how are you my friend?

    Of course you do realise that the Albinoni was in fact a 20th century invention (at least that's my memory of the work).
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Yeap it was a scandal, if I recall ok, a contemporary (then) Italian composer, that's why the score is not public domain.

    Jonesey, I think the bride must look sad with this adagio singing at her wedding day...
    But then again, why not?

    I don't find it a sad work ... more sombre and thoughtful perhaps. Bride's choice - could have been some hideous heavy metal horror!

    Hello CT64 - I'm doing well thanks ... playing more and more which is great. Tomorrow is the start of the Wedding season for me.
    Also practising hard for the BIG service in a couple of months when I'll be playing the wonderful piece Jean-Paul composed for me.

    All in all things are going really well - hope all is well with you too.

    Yeah, I can't wait to hear that - he's such a talented composer indeed. I hope you're record it, if possible and share with your friends?

    Yes, I'll certainly be recording it - probably record the Adagio as well, sounding very nice during rehearsal
