The Italian violinist and composer Arcangelo Corelli was SO well known and well respected that many other musicians composed tributes to him. German, French, Scottish, and Spanish composers, among others, all jumped on the bandwagon to celebrate Corelli’s considerable musical talents, and so will Sunday Baroque this weekend.
The original Academy of Ancient Music was a private club of musicians and intellectuals in the early 1700s. They met at public houses to socialize and play music that was at least 100 years old at that time. You’ll hear the modern incarnation of the Academy of Ancient Music playing a Sonata from their brand new cd this weekend on Sunday Baroque.
