Corelli: Violin Sonata in D major, Op 5, No 1 (11:00)
The Avison Ensemble is one of England’s foremost exponents of 18th century music on period instruments. Their new recording marks the 300th anniversary of Arcangelo Corelli’s death. The sonatas in his Op 5 collection were almost certainly written for Corelli’s own use and provide the best evidence of his renowned violin technique.
