Tomaso Albinoni's most famous piece of music, which is probably not a piece of music he wrote at all. It was likely written by Remo Giazotto, a musicologist (and composer), who initially attributed it to Albinoni, then took full credit when he couldn't produce the original fragments recovered from the Saxon State Library in Dresden. Muska Mangano, assistant to Giazotto, later discovered an independent bass transcription of this work that could mean at least some of it was composed by Albinoni.

Albinoni was a prolific Italian Baroque composer famous in the 18th Century for his operas, but most of those were lost over the centuries. Sadly, much of what remained of Albinoni's work was destroyed along with the Dresden State Library during the Dresden bombings in February and March of 1945. So it goes.
