With Munchinger and the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester. Arcangelo Corelli was a man of cultured taste and remarkably wide artistic interests. A violin virtuoso of considerable fame in his own day, he was then better known for his talent in this direction than for his compositions, and so great was his influence over the playing of the instrument that he laid firm foundations for the subsequent development of its technique. The Christmas Concerto is perharps his best-known composition in this field, and is an excellent example of his style. It is written for two violins and cello soloists and a string orchestra ripicno.
