An epic Italian poem from the 16th century has inspired more classical music than any other work of literature. Here are a few of the best.
Mostly admired today as an instrumental composer, Albinoni was well-loved in his own time as an opera composer. Most of his operatic works have been lost, though, having not been published during his lifetime. This Ariosto adaptation of 'Alcina deluded by Roger' received 'common applause' at its premiere. No music survives.
