Sonata in D
The trumpet sonata by Arcangelo Corelli is virtually the only genuine work that was not included in his six printed collections. It has English connections: it was published in London in 1704, and in 1713 a performance was advertised as containing ‘several pieces of Musick proper for the Trumpet particularly a Sonata Compos’d by Signor Corelli, on purpose for Mr Twiselton when he was at Rome’. Although Corelli is thought of as a Roman composer he was born in Fusignano near Bologna, and received his early training there; in Bologna, doubtless, he was introduced to the trumpet sonata idiom.
