Corelli, Arcangelo, called "il divino" (1653-1713), an Italian musical composer, born at Fusignano, and taught by Bassano. He went to Paris and Germany as a violinist, spending nine years at Munich, and then to Rome, where he settled, and was patronised by Cardinal Ottoboni, under whose auspices he gave noted Monday concerts. His concertos, sonatas, and violin pieces marked an epoch in music, and had great influence on Bach and other composers. Herr Joachim has edited an edition of his sonatas.
