The genesis of Corelli
Arcangelo Corelli is one of the most beloved musicians of the baroque period, highly influential in the development of the solo sonata, and establishing the violin as an elegant solo instrument second to none.
This concert explores the life and times of Corelli’s youth, performing the music of his immediate predecessors, and his early contribution to the music, the trio sonatas from his Opus 1.
Recorded live for ArtSound FM in Wesley Music Centre, Forrest ACT, on 10 April 2019. Recording and notes by Tim Lamble with acknowledgement to Donald Nicholson.
