Tune of the Day: Preludio by Corelli

from Trio Sonata in E minor, transcribed for two flutes

Today we propose the opening movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata Op. 2 No. 4 in E minor, published in 1685. The original edition of the Op. 2 sonatas was dedicated to Cardinal Benedetto Pamphili, who is now more famous as a composer and patron of the arts than for his spiritual activity. Corelli worked for several years for Pamphili, and it seems these sonatas were originally played by Corelli himself (who was an accomplished violinist) and other musicians on Sunday afternoons.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
