The Twelve Concerti Grossi, Op6 by Corelli

Between the years 1680 to roughly 1730 Rome, Italy experienced one of the greatest periods of music in its history. The city had numerous wealthy patrons of Baroque music, religious, political, cultural institutions and nobility. Corelli worked under the auspices of the Congregazione dei Musici di Roma. He assumed the major responsibility for music at ‘sinfonias’ or music at banquets, or religious or civil ceremonies. His published works consisted mainly of trio and solo sonatas and concerti grossi, with 48 Trio Sonatas opp 1-4, and 12 Solo Sonatas op.5 and only 12 Concertos in the Opus 6 group. Each of the twelve concertos is made up of 6 movements of different tempo and pacing. These were the fashion of the day, played at social gatherings – the different movements allowed for the different court dances that were popular in that day. Corelli also conducted a ‘school’ for other composers/musicians of that period. Handel, Hayden and Teleman all participated in his school and Corelli’s influence can be heard in the compositions of these other musicians, especially Handel. The Concerto Grossi Op 6 of Handel was often thought to be a plagarized work, however in those times the sincerest form of complimenting was to imitate. It is difficult for me to choose my favorite movement from all of the 12 concerti in this collection. It is one of the pieces I listen to most frequently in its entirety when I have a big project to work on and I need the infusion of energy, creativity and endurance. I have uploaded both discs in the collection to my iPod and take it on 5 mile runs with my dogs. I am able to keep running enlivened by Corelli’s wonderful music.
