Fellini’s 1960 film “La Dolce Vita,” set against the backdrop of Roman high society, is the springboard for Baroque Band’s celebration of Arcangelo Corelli, to whom the Band will pay tribute during 2013, the 300th year since the composer’s death. Esteemed by Rome’s 17th- and 18th-century high society, and the foremost violinist of his time, Corelli had a powerful and lasting influence on the orchestra, on violin technique, and on the development of classical music. Musical society in Rome also owed much to Corelli; he was received in the highest circles of the aristocracy, and for a long time presided at the celebrated Monday concerts in the palace of Cardinal Ottoboni. Corelli’s influence can be traced from his time, through many famous violinists over the generations, to today.
