Preludio, from Sonata in D minor (violin viola duo)
Title: Preludio, from Sonata in D minor, op. 5 no.7
Composer: Archangelo Corelli, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Viola
Printout: 2 pages
Note: The shortage of baroque repertoire for violin and viola prompted me to transcribe this and many other sonata movements for that combination. The writing is imitative, so the two parts are of equal importance. Corelli’s op. 5 sonatas are mainstays of the baroque violin repertoire.
