Tune of the Day: Preludio by Corelli
from Trio Sonata in F major, transcribed for two flutes
Today we propose the opening movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 7 in F major. The Op. 2 sonatas were so successful that after the original publication in Rome in 1685 they were quickly reprinted in Bologna, and by 1710 they were reprinted throughout Italy no less than 13 times! They were also published in England and, most of all, in France, where the respect and admiration for Corelli started to grow.
Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
