Program Notes

This well-crafted suite contains three contrasting dance movements that were originally composed by the Italian Baroque composer, violinist, and teacher Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) a full generation before Bach and Handel, The opening Praludium, in D minor is characterized by alternating brass and woodwind choirs. The quicker Gavotte, in A minor, is set in cut time and marked "Allegro," while the closing Menuett is marked "Vivace.'"
