I like the sound of this, it seems to translate well to woodwinds.
I only have a few minor issues on some of the instrumental choices.
for example, in the first few seconds, a flute plays the melodic line, but then it switches to a clarinet, except that the flute timbre just seems to disappear. it's a bit jarring to my ear. I think I'd have preferred a smoother transition.
I also notice that the first oboe note of the "main" descending theme seems smothered by a held flute note. maybe that's just a recording balance issue?
On a musicological note: technically, this is Giazotto's Adagio in G minor, having been composed entirely after the end of World War II by him, supposedly based upon a fragment of a theme by Albinoni. This fragment was never found, and most scholars now attribute the composition of the Adagio entirely to Giazotto.
Thanks for listening, Michel,
Seems like the 1st half of the 20th Century was full of pesky composers who fooled people into believing a new work had been found. The 1st time I heard this it seemed to be more Romantic than Baroque in nature, but I thought it might be in the orchestrating. It's always suspicious to allege anything after the fact....
The flute had the lead in much of this so I tried to split between flute & clarinet.
I'll listen again for your suggestions.
