In his opus 1, the young Locatelli succeeded in preserving the traditional method of composition while nevertheless being open to new influences. This collection follows Corelli's famous Op. 6 and, like that, is divided in eight 'Concerti da chiesa' and four 'Concerti da camera', with the eighth work, like Corelli's, being structured like a Christmas concerto.
The study score is based on the Locatelli Complete Edition which makes the works of the Italian master available in accordance with the most recent research and current musicological techniques of editing.
