We don't know much about Michel Corrette. There is a list of positions he held. He was a popular teacher with many pupils. Some critics think that his arrangements are better than his original compositions! He left us several musical instruction books which give us insight into contemporary playing techniques
Corrette composed 25 Concerto Comiques based on popular tunes of the day. He arranged these tunes for three melody instruments and continuo. The version of his Concerto No.17 is for three violins and continuo.
I've corrected as many of the errors in the score as I could find and tidied up some of the articulation and slurs.
