Pastorale

Concerto Grosso, Op. 6, No. 8 ("Christmas")

Composer Players Instrument Notation Period
Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) solo guitar Standard Baroque

In a concerto grosso the musical material is passed between a small group of soloists (the concertino, in this case three instruments) and full orchestra (the ripieno or concerto grosso, seven instruments). In transcribing this for guitar, I have retained the section markings. These are shown as [soli.] and [tutti], and can be a help in selecting dynamics and timbre.
