Arcangelo Corelli?s Violin Sonatas Op. 5 are among those works in violin literature that mark a new epoch, and until this day they have been part of the standard repertory of every violinist. Therefore it is all the more astonishing that there had not been any Urtext edition of these important works for a long time. This gap is filled by a new two-volume edition of the Wiener Urtext edition. The text is based on the first edition which Corelli himself supervised. This edition includes the ornaments for sonatas nos. 1-6, published by Roger in Amsterdam in 1710 as well as Geminiani?s ornaments for Sonata no. 9. The notes on performance practice by Baroque specialist Reinhard Goebel from Cologne are useful suggestions for an appropriate interpretation.
