Our program is a dialogue between Arcangello Corelli, his contemporaries and two suceeding generations of European composers marked by his music. 

Corelli's music made a true revolution in the European scene, revealing new possibilities, prompting composers to relate to and explore in depth the genres of continuo sonata, trio-sonata and concerto grosso. His trio-sonatas are considered the culmination of the genre, and in his time were extolled throughout Europe: 
"If music can be immortal, Corelli’s consorts will be so” - Roger North, 1710


In addition to Corelli's "immortal consorts",  Ensemble PHOENIX presents several of the outright homages made to him by composers of different lands: Couperin's Apothéose de Corelli [France],  Telemann's  Corellisierende sonaten [Germany],  Veracini's
Dissertazioni sopra l’Opera Quinta del Corelli [Italy].
We shall hear also his influence expressed in the music of composers such as Scarlatti, Leclair, Marais and Geminiani.
