Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni (1671 - 1751) was a composer from the Baroque period. Born in Venice, he studied violin and voice.[1]

Adagio in G minor

Adagio in G minor was actually composed by Remo Giazotto based on Albinoni's Sonata in G minor. A fragment of the Sonata was found admist the ruins of the Saxon State Library, Dresden, bombed by the Allies in World War II.[2] While the piece was not actually written by Albinoni, it is commonly attributed to him.

It was played as a short jam before Time Is Running Out on the earlier half of the 2006 tour. This arrangement featured Bellamy's Kaoss Pad, with Wolstenholme playing single notes on bass, and no percussion.
