Family & Life
Tomaso Albinoni was born on 8th June 1671. His father was a wealthy paper merchant and in normal circumstances, Albinoni would have inherited his father’s business as the eldest child. Thankfully, his father decided not to force this on him so Tomaso was able to become a full-time musician, composer and according to some also ran a successful singing academy. Prior to this Albinoni just played music for pleasure.
Albinoni lived his life in Venice and married an opera singer. Impressively he composed over eighty operas before his death on 17th January 1751.
