During his lifetime, Arcangelo Corelli was considered the greatest living composer; his name was known throughout Europe, and his works held up as models by his peers. Corelli’s Op. 3 (12 sonatas for two violins and continuo) – and seven similar but seldom-heard, posthumous sonatas – are performed here by Enrico Gatti, the most authoritative Corelli interpreter.
Enrico Gatti illuminates every phrase of this music from within, building a universe of balance, fullness of sound and expression that make other interpretative attempts sound decidedly academic.
This multiaward-winning disc returns with new artwork and a cover that celebrates the close artistic association and friendship of Corelli and the celebrated painterFrancesco Trevisani with a masterpiece commissioned by the two artists’patron, Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni.
