This set contains two discs of sonatas by Corelli, certainly the most important baroque Italian composer because of the influence his work had on other, later composers. The structure of his sonatas set the standard for later works, with their four movements alternating slow-fast-slow-fast. In addition, the slow movements were often quite simple, allowing the lead violinist to improvise over them.
You can sample only 30 seconds (or 15% if that is longer) of a given track. Select from the View tracks list. Each sample will normally start from the beginning but you can drag the slider to any position before pressing play. PLEASE NOTE: If you are behind a firewall and the sound is prematurely terminated you may need to register Ludwig as a trusted source with your firewall software.
