Not much is known about Tomaso Albinoni’s personal life. He was born on June 8, 1671 in Venice. He was the first known Italian composer to feature the oboe as a solo instrument in concerti in 1715. Johann Sebastian Bach used themes from Albinoni’s work in two fugues that he wrote. His most famous work, Adagio in G minor, is still recorded today, including a rendition by Jim Morrison and The Doors. Albinoni died in 1751.
