Baroque Corelli


Arcangelo Corelli (February 17, 1653 – January 8, 1713) Coming just before Bach, Vivaldi and Handel. “His compositions are distinguished by a beautiful flow of melody and by a mannerly treatment of the accompanying parts, which he is justly said to have liberated from the strict rules of counterpoint” (from Wikipedia)

Three pieces from his Concerto Grosso Opus 6. He really worked hard on the pieces in opus 6 – or so my sources tell me!

    Hi Jim,
    First of all, great, great site!
    I’m from Manila, Philippines. I’ve been addicted to classical music since mid-teens (just turned 20 this year!) and have been scouring the Net for free classical music. I got a lot from pianosociety, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Music Library (great site as well, if they had the movements in separate files though it would have been perfect!) and 1classical. . .and now I came upon THIS! I learn a lot and get free stuff at the same time.
    I love Vivaldi, so listening to Corelli didn’t take a lot of adjustment. I find his music very pleasant 🙂
    I’m off now to other posts. Teehee. ^_^
