First broadcast:

Donald Macleod explores the life and work of Venetian composer Tomas Albinoni.

He considers Albinoni's important role in the development of the concerto form; his Opus 2 collection was the first by any Italian composer to make a serious impact north of the Alps. Bach himself took the trouble to copy the second concerto by hand.
