News & Comments

Dear readers, There looks to be a strong similarity (they are identical) between this score and the concerti grossi Op. 8 by Giuseppe Torelli, the first of which is edited by Mr Bolognani. Which is the most probable attribution ? Could Torelli have copied Albinoni's music under his name ? Or the manuscript from which the Albinoni version is copied report a false attribution ? I'll be curious to know more, and very grateful to who could satisfy such curiosity. Sincerely, Francesco.

Versions 1.0 of the concertos were separately published on May 2, 2007, January 8 and May 25, 2008, respectively. The three concertos have been collected in the same publication, with a new editorial format, on February 9, 2014.
