The theme is not by Corelli! And what do we now call the child?

Violin Sonata in D minor, Op.5 No.12 ‘La Folia’ (Corelli, Arcangelo)

However, unlike what Rachmaninoff assumed, the Italian composer did not compose this theme. Around the same time there also developed a harmonic-melodic formula of the same name that, however, can no longer be linked to the wildness of the dance.

It was very much in vogue in subsequent centuries, and — undergoing constant modification — was especially utilised as a theme for sets of variations. Rachmaninoff first learned that the theme did not come from Corelli through a concert review of his recital in Carnegie Hall on 7 November Corelli was and remained the inspirational source, and the caption title of Op.


A recommendation to conclude, Vladimir Ashkenazy in this impressive recording!
