Tune of the Day: Preludio by Corelli
Today we propose the opening movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 11 in E-flat major. You may notice that the key signature has only 2 flats instead of 3, despite the piece being in E-flat major. This kind of discrepancy was relatively common during the Baroque period.
This piece was originally composed for two violins and continuo. A couple of notes have been altered to make it playable on the flute, namely three Bb3 which have been raised: the 2nd note of measure 3 and the 7th note of measure 12 in the first violin, and the 2nd note of measure 4 in the second violin.
Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
