Notes and Editorial Reviews

Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) was an influential composer, musician and prominent figure in the musical world in the last part of the seventeenth and very early eighteenth century in Italy and beyond. It is indeed hard to accept that all the known works of Corelli can be contained on just ten CDs. But they can; they have been; and they're available again in a re-issue of Brilliant Classics 92403. That set had a slightly different disposition of works but is essentially the same.

The set is valuable as a single survey of the great composer's work - especially since it contains many items otherwise unavailable. The period instruments sound well, the playing throughout is accomplished and achieved with a certain almost
Read more nonchalance that suggests the players are very familiar with the music.
