If you are familiar with the movie Master and Commander you might recall that the soundtrack is particularly spectacular. It is a mixture of original score work, with a wonderful mixture of pieces of classical music. I was familiar with most of the pieces, but the one that I found particularly haunting was a piece by a composer of whom I had never heard before: Arcangelo Corelli. The golden-locked gent you see here is he. OK, so "big hair" was popular in his day, among men. His work was foundational for later Baroque composers, including our own J.S. Bach, as well as Handel, Vivaldi and others.
The piece that I find so hauntingly beautiful is this part of his Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 8 in G Minor, "Fatto per la notte di na tale."
There are not many of his works extant, or even known. But I enjoy the ones that are. You might too.
