Among the various selections contained in this recording, the common aspect connecting them all is that none were originally composed for the guitar. The modern classical guitar was at least a half-century away from being the standard plucked instrument of the day when the composers on this recording were active, and with the exception of Johann Sebastian Bach, none of them composed for the 18th-century relative of the guitar, the lute. It was then, and still is today for that matter, common practice that music written for one instrument should be transcribed for another. This centuries-old tradition is continued with these selections.

The title track of this recording is derived from the Italian Tomaso Albinoni, who gained recognition in Venezia for his concerti for oboe. Ironically, his best-known work is not entirely his own. The revered “Adagio” for string orchestra, was actually conceived by Italian musicologist Remo Giazatto from a slow movement of an Albinoni trio sonata that survived the destruction of the State Library of Dresden during World War II where much of Albinoni’s work was housed.

Domenico Scarlatti, born in Napoli in 1685, was the son of well-known composer Allessandro Scarlatti. In 1720, Domenico moved to the Iberian Peninsula where he would remain for the rest of his life, first to Lisbon as Maestro of the Royal Chapel and then to Madrid as the tutor to Queen Maria Barbara. During this time, he composed over 600 sonatas for harpsichord from which the selections on this recording are taken.
