Palladio is a composition for string orchestra by Karl Jenkins, written in 1995, with the title referring to the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio (1508–1580).
The work in three movements is in the form of a concerto grosso.
Palladio is featured on a 1996 CD Diamond Music, played by members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. It is combined with other music by Jenkins including variations from Adiemus and his second string quartet. Movement I appears in other collections, such as Karl Jenkins & Adiemus: The Essential Collection.
Motifs of the first movement, Allegretto, were used for a TV commercial of De Beers, "A Diamond Is Forever", from 1993.
