Download chamber music by Arcangelo Corelli
The Avison Ensemble performs the Baroque composer’s Violin Sonatas
When Corelli published his Violin Sonatas in 1700 they took Europe by storm.
This week’s free download is the second movement Allegro from the Sonata in D minor, No. 12 – a set of variations on La Folia, a frenzied Portuguese folk dance.
The track comes from The Avison Ensemble’s new recording of the works, part of the group’s project to record all the composer’s chamber music, on the Linn label.
