Notes and Editorial Reviews

Arcangelo Corelli's contribution to the history of violin performance was immense. All six of his published collections of instrumental music demonstrate his exceptional skill as a violinist and composer, but it was in his Violin Sonatas, Op. 5 that Corelli had the most significant impact on violin technique. The Op. 5 collection consists of eleven sonatas and a twelfth sonata with a series of twenty-three variations on the famous "Follia" theme. All twelve pieces contain a variety of difficult violin techniques. Lina Tur Bonet is one of the most exciting violinists of the younger generation. She is accompanied by her ensemble Musica Alchemica. Arcangelo Corelli's contribution to the history of violin performance was immense.
