The Apotheosis of Corelli

Corelli3.jpg

Details

For more than a decade, Baroque trio Latitude 37 has been giving exquisite and authentic performances of 17th and 18th-century music.

The combination of Baroque violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord opens up a wealth of fascinating, rarely heard repertoire. In 2019 its concert series focuses on a composer who represents the epitome of Baroque theatricality and flamboyance, Arcangelo Corelli.

Latitude 37’s exploration of composer Arcangelo Corelli’s genius culminates with a dazzling historically informed performance of his seminal works and music by composers who were profoundly influenced by him. Through the lens of Corelli’s exquisite trio sonatas, the beauty of music by François Couperin, J.S. Bach and Francesco Veracini comes into ever clearer focus.
