Naxos Records announced the release of American violinist Augusta McKay Lodge's new album: "Corelli's Band."
The disc presents Corelli's Violin Sonata Op. 5 No. 3 in C major, Mossi's Violin Sonata in E minor Op. 6 No. 9, Violin Sonata in D minor, Op. 1 No. 1 and Violin Sonata in G major, Op. 1 No. 3, and Carbonelli's Violin Sonata No. 10 in G minor and Violin Sonata No. 9 in E minor.
"I had long been fascinated by the violin sonatas of Giovanni Mossi," said Lodge. "I fell upon his Op. 1 one day and I thought, 'Wait a minute, this music looks and sounds like Corelli (the famous baroque composer). Why haven't I heard of it?' Shortly after, I was introduced to Carbonelli as well, and since both composers were very likely students of Corelli, I had this idea to make a disc centered around the three."
