Voicing Corelli
Vocal pieces by Corelli? Yes, that's right! Although Corelli's music was known and admired throughout Europe, the fact that his published output was both small and restricted entirely to instrumental music was a cause of frustration for many. To remedy the situation, steps had to be taken. Fabio Bonizzoni's award-winning ensemble returns to York following their appearance here in 2009 with a unique programme of vocal duets on sacred texts ingeniously adapted from Corelli's trio sonatas
by his contemporary admirer Antonio Tonelli, interspersing them with examples of the real thing and a secular duet by Handel, written in London but recalling his own youthful days in Rome.
