Corelli, Handel
Rome, first decade of the eighteenth century: Arcangelo Corelli, one of the greatest Italian composers of the time and the rising star Georg Friederich Händel, the Caro Sassone, share the stage of one of the capitals of music in the eighteenth century. The first six sonatas of Corelli's opera III are accompanied by a choice of sacred compositions written by Handel during the years spent in the service of Francesco Maria Ruspoli.
