Pentatone Studio Masters devoted to music of Archangelo Corelli was recorded during concerts at the Vredenburg, Utrecht in January 2003, produced by Carl Schuurbiers with Erdo Groot as recording engineer. The recording has superb, full-bodied sound with sonorous string textures (unheard on the previous CD/ SACD). Conductor Simon Murphy points out there is a similarity between jazz and Corelli’s music as in the Corelli’s’ music performers are expected to improvise and add elaborate ornamentation. The result is Corelli with a vibrant sound not to be heard in most other recordings of the composer’s music.

“This recording surpasses all existing recordings in depth and perspective…Fauré excellsthanks to the collective effort of choir, orchestra and soloists.” (Huib Ramaer, de Volkskrant)

Corelli 1653 – 2003
This recording project of the New Dutch Academy celebrates the 350 years’ presence of the immortal Corelli in the world. The project highlights the esteem in which he was held in the 18th century and the gift of his musical legacy to posterity. The performance takes its inspiration from both Corelli’s visual and aural world, and combines some of Corelli’s best-loved works with some of his lesser-known gems. It aims to restore his pieces to their full glory and, in doing so, to pay tribute to the grand master himself – Corelli, who was and still is, “the Orpheus of our time”. – Simon Murphy, The Hague, September 2003.
