Arcangelo Corelli (February 17, 1653 – January 8, 1713) was an influential Italian violinist and composer of Baroque music.

Welcome to "Corelli" group! This group is dedicated to a great Baroque composer: Arcangelo Corelli.

The style of execution introduced by Corelli and preserved by his pupils, such as Francesco Geminiani, Pietro Locatelli, and many others, was of vital importance for the development of violin playing. It has been said that the paths of all of the famous violinist-composers of 18th-century Italy lead to Arcangelo Corelli who was their "iconic point of reference.
His compositions for the instrument mark an epoch in the history of chamber music. His influence was not confined to his own country. Johann Sebastian Bach studied the works of Corelli and based an organ fugue (BWV 579) on Corelli's Opus 3 of 1689.
His compositions are distinguished by a beautiful flow of melody and by a mannerly treatment of the accompanying parts, which he is justly said to have liberated from the strict rules of counterpoint. History has remembered him with such titles as "Founder of Modern Violin Technique," the "World's First Great Violinist," and the "Father of the Concerto Grosso."

    I was just browsing the group "Baroque & Classical Music", and wondered whether there would be a group for Arcangelo. & Yes, there ís a group dedicated to one of the greatest composers for the Violin. I am pleased to be the 66th member =). Opus #5 for Violin & Harpsichord is great!

    Greetings everyone. I'm a newbie in classical music(broad sense) but I'm growing a taste for it. Corelli is becoming one of my favorite artists.

    Hi there! I just joined the group... I like baroque music and Corelli is one of my favorite composers but I'm not an expert so I hope I can learn a lot from the people over here.

    Corelli's trio sonatas are essential listening to any serious students of Baroque, let alone all, chamber music. I've always been interested in the Corellian trio sonata as possible precursor to the string quartet. Beyond that curiousity the form is just very lovely and well-executed by Corelli and his students. Lovely music.
