Tune of the Day: Preludio by Corelli

from Trio Sonata in B minor, transcribed for two flutes

Today we propose the opening movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 8 in B minor, published in 1685. Corelli was a violinist, and this sonata was originally scored for two violins and continuo; however, adapting it to two flutes required only one small modification; namely, changing the low A in measure 8 of the second violin. There are two “easy” solutions here: one could either move the A up one octave, or replace it with a C-sharp (as shown in the sheet music).

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
