Michael Talbot looks in detail at Albinoni's output, and, placing the composer in his historical context, argues for a general re-appraisal of his achievement. He provides a detailed review of Albinoni's works according to chronology and genre and includes a discussion of several newly discovered works. Alongside this review is a penetrating analysis of Albinoni's musical style in general, resulting from many years of familiarity with the music. Talbot also presents new information about Albinoni's unusual life and many interesting details of Venetian background, showing how this very distinctive social and cultural environment left its mark on the composer. Also included is a complete catalogue of Albinoni's works, and a guide to modern editions.

Michael Talbot, Alsop Professor of Music, University of Liverpool.Review:
From the hardback:
'one of the most successful examples of ths genre to emerge in English in the past few years ... It reveals the clarity of thought, the propriety of style and idea, and the impeccable attention to detail viewed in breadth as well as in depth that have become the hallmarks of Professor Talbot's
scholarship ... Professor Talbot's book makes us see that Albinoni's works deserve a greater hearing than they at present receive - his vocal as well as his instrumental works. This admirable study may well encourage the sort of platform they deserve.'
