Did you know?

Corelli began working on Twelve Concerti Grossi in the 1680s, not releasing the works for publication until 1714.

Albinoni was inspired to write his Concerto for oboe and strings in D minor Op.9 No.2 after viewing performances of theatrical compositions.

Vivaldi was one of the pioneers of the violin as a solo instrument.

Bach’s orchestral suites are numbered out of chronological order! The correct order by date composed would be No. 1, 4, 3 then 2.
