Tune of the Day: Preludio by Corelli

from Trio Sonata in B-flat major, transcribed for two flutes

Today we propose the opening movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 5 in B-flat major, published in 1685. Like the other Op. 2 sonatas, this is a sonata da camera (“chamber sonata”), and expresses the Italian style of the period. Composed for two melodic instruments (e.g. two violins, or two flutes) and basso continuo, it was intended not only for professional musicians, but also for the private enjoyment of refined amateurs.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
