About Corelli Suite, Op. 3/2 (arr. Hall)
Corelli lived in the late 1600’s, a time when the violin reached its peak of development. He was one of the greatest violinists and composers of string music of his time, preceding Bach and Handel. This suite for string quartet is essentially his Trio Sonata Op. 3, No.2 with a viola part tastefully added. In Corelli’s day every performance of the trio was different as it was the custom of the keyboard accompanist to improvise on the figured bass as the performance progressed. I am sure Corelli would approve of this arrangement! Refer to the Trio Sonata, Op. 3, No. 2 for two violins and cello (20702101) and to the Violin Trio with optional viola (20712107). The 4 short movements are Grave, Allegro, Adagio and Allegro and total duration is 7 minutes with all repeats.
