The Adagio in G minor for violinstringsand Profyle - Whispers In The Dark continuo is a neo-Baroque composition commonly attributed to the 18th-century Venetian master Tomaso Albinonibut actually composed by 20th-century musicologist and Albinoni biographer Remo Giazottopurportedly based on the discovery of a manuscript fragment by Albinoni.
There is a continuing scholarly debate about whether the alleged fragment was real, or a musical hoax perpetrated by Giazotto, but there is no doubt about Giazotto's authorship of the remainder of the work. According to Giazotto, he obtained the document shortly after the end of World War II from the Saxon State Library in Dresden which had preserved most of its collection, though its buildings were destroyed in the bombing raids of February and March by the British and American Air Forces.
Giazotto concluded that the manuscript fragment was a portion of a church sonata sonata da chiesaone of two standard forms of the trio sonata in G minor composed by Albinoni, possibly as part of his Op.
In his account, Giazotto then constructed the balance of the complete single-movement work based on this fragmentary theme. The piece is most commonly orchestrated for string ensemble and organ, or string ensemble alone, but with its growing fame has been transcribed for other instruments. The composition has also permeated popular culture, having been used as background music for many films, in television programmes, and in advertisements see below.
The Adagio plays a role in Steven Galloway 's The Cellist of Sarajevoin which the cellist pledges to play it every day for 22 days in honour of 22 civilians killed during the siege of Gymnopédie No.
