This week's free download the first movement of Corelli's Sonata à 3 in F, played by Italian harpist Mara Galassi. The piece received four stars for both recording and performance in the June issue of BBC Music Magazine.

Corelli's instrument of choice was the violin, although he used only a limited portion of its capabilities, with parts for the violin rarely proceeding above D on the highest string. A soloist with a penchant for Italian 17th century music, it is fitting that Galassi has chosen works by the Baroque violinst and composer. 

'Galassi's double harp is based on the splendid 1632 'Arpa Barberini' by Girolamo Acciari, its beguilingly silvery sound ideal for these intricate works, while its spectrum of chromatic colours captures their variegated effects,' writes Kate Bolton-Porciatti.
