Corelli was one of the most popular composers of his day (early 18th century), yet only a small amount of his original output exists. Presented on this unique recording are transcriptions for recorder of six of the violin sonatas from the Opus 5 collection. Transcriptions of this nature were perfectly acceptable and augmented by improvisations and ornamentations from the performers.


The relationship between these two fine musicians – both can be considered to be in the very top tier of ther respective instruments – manifests itself in a superlative performance which gives free rein to their creativity and virtuosity.
