In today’s video, we present an amazing interpretation of Arcangelo Corelli’s Sonata in D Major, played by baroque trumpet and organ. The Sonata in D Major by Arcangelo Corelli is an elegant example of Baroque music. This particular sonata is characterised by its lively tempos, which display Corelli’s skill.

In this interpretation, the Baroque trumpet leads the melody, while the organ creates the perfect musical ambience.

The organ adds depth to the music, creating a grand and rich sound.
