Scarce a contemporary musical writer, historian, or poet, neglected to celebrate [Corelli’s] genius and talents…” - Charles Burney on Corelli’s enduring fame and popularity (1789)

In contrast to JJ Quantz, Arcangelo Corelli travelled little yet his influence and reputation spread throughout Europe through his teaching and his published compositions. “It [is] wonderfull to observe what a skratching of Corelli there is every where - nothing will relish but Corelli”, wroteRoger North in England in 1710. Across Europe, composers keen to join in the Corelli craze wrote “in the style of Corelli” – sometimes so similar that the publisher, Le Cène, even attempted to pass off Corelli’s pupil John Ravenscroft’s sonatas as Corelli’s Opus 7!
