Catalogue Number: 06Q025
Reference: CDR 90000 155
Description: This huge work, which takes over three hours, was published in 1744. Both a tribute to Corelli's Opus 5 (there are many points of contact from the obvious to the arcane) and a stand-alone masterpiece on its own merits, it kind of closes the door on the Baroque with music of such a variety of designs and content (and virtuosic demands) as never came before it. 3 CDs for the price of 2. Trio Settecento.
