Arcangelo Corelli was a composer and violinist from Rome. He helped develop a new form, the 'Concerto Grosso' which has since evolved into the modern Symphony and Concerto forms. He is also known as the founder of modern violin technique. He met Handel when Handel visited Rome, and introduced the style of the concerto grosso to him.

He composed several trio sonatas, some solo violin pieces, several 'concerti grossi', and a jig or 'Giga' or 'Gigue', which is available on Best Classical Tunes,  played on the  harpsichord.
