Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Tomaso Albinoni was the son of a well-to-do paper merchant who owned several
shops in Venice and some landed property. Little is known of his early life and
education—the composer, Legrenzi, is sometimes suggested as a possible teacher.
Because of his relative economic comfort, Albinoni was content to compose as a
dilettante, or a man of means who delighted himself and others through music.
(The Venetian, Benedetto Marcello, also fits into this category.)
