Sonata da chiesa in A major, Op 3 No 12
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Spaniard Lulier and Corelli frequently collaborated in the production of oratorios, Lulier providing the vocal music and Corelli the sinfonias. One such collaboration was S Beatrice d’Este, performed in Roma and Modena in 1689; Corelli’s Op 3 set of Sonate da chiesa was dedicated to the Duke of Modena in the same year. These are more elaborate than the first set, exploiting the virtuosity of the players of all three instruments. The extended opening flourishes of Op 3 No 12, over long held ‘pedal’ notes, are a violinistic interpretation of the style of the organ toccata; these give way to a short Adagio where the typical Corellian ‘walking bass’ makes a brief appearance. Then comes a Vivace, in which the cello shows its paces and an Allegro in which the violinists do the same; the sonata ends with an exciting fugue.
