About this Recording

CORELLI: Violin Sonatas Nos. 7-12, Op. 5

Arcangelo Corelli’s fame as both violinist and composer was widespread throughout seventeenth century Europe. His surviving works are relatively few in number but farreaching in influence, both in terms of performance practice and compositional technique. The twelve Opus 5 Sonatas for violin and continuo are notable for their juxtaposition of slow movements of a lyrical, elegant beauty akin to the human voice, and brilliant, technically demanding fast movements. Sonatas Nos. 1-6 are available on Naxos 8.557165.
