Preludio and Allegro
By Archangelo Corelli / arr. Ruth Siegler
Highland/Etling String Orchestra
Students will enjoy the musical "conversations" that take place when they perform this trio sonata from the 17th century. The stately "Preludio" in C major is accompanied by a soaring bass line that is an excellent introduction to the art of Baroque continuo playing. Following the "Allegro," the first theme returns to close out this classy, elegant piece of music. All parts remain in 1st position.
