Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli, also known as the Corelli Fantasia, is a work for string orchestra by the British composer Michael Tippett. It was commissioned by the 1953 Edinburgh Festival to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the birth of the Italian composer Arcangelo Corelli, and given its first performance on 29 August 1953, in the Usher Hall, by the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Tippett.

And it concludes with three lovely works for string orchestra - the richly nuanced Fantasia Concertante on a theme of Corelli, the immediately endearing Little Music, and the heart-swelling Concerto for double string orchestra - played with passionate enthusiasm and endless energy by the Academy of St. under Neville Marriner.

Marriner leads an excellent version of the Concerto for double string orchestra, with a dynamic first movement, not as urgent and raging as the one recorded by Rudolf Barshai in 1962 with the combined forces of his own Moscow Chamber Orchestra and Menuhin's Bath Festival Orchestra (Tippett, Piano Concerto Etc), but still with jubilant drive, more than Marriner's previous and slightly. He now sets off at a more flowing tempo, although not as urgent as Walter Goehr (premiere and semi-private recording in 1943, now on Remembering Tippett: Recordings from the 1940s, remake in 1952 with the Philharmonia Orchestra for HMV, not reissued on CD) or Barshai, more in line with Tippett's own in his 1987 recording for Virgin (Tippett Conducts Tippett
