ArtistsThe Avison Ensemble
Corelli - Opus 6: Concerti Grossi is the third album in The Avison Ensemble’s critically acclaimed series of recordings with Linn, and the first in their celebration of Corelli’s chamber music. Originally released to mark the 300th anniversary of the death of the composer, the ensemble’s critically acclaimed series explores the six opera of the eminent Italian’s chamber music: the concerti grossi, violin sonatas, chamber sonatas and church sonatas.
Critics were united and effusive in their praise, describing the performances as ‘urgently recommended’ (Fanfare), ‘breathtakingly impressive’ (Gramophone) and ‘stylish, imaginative and technically assured’ (The Strad).
The Avison Ensemble is one of England’s foremost exponents of 18th-century music on period instruments comprising some of Europe’s leading Baroque musicians. Formed in 1985, the Ensemble has attracted great critical acclaim; The Guardian commented: ‘I’d take the Avison Ensemble over Karajan any day’. The Avison Ensemble has appeared to critical acclaim at St. John’s Smith Square in London and at the Hallé Handel Festival in Germany.
Pavlo Beznosiuk, the UK’s foremost Baroque violin virtuoso, is in demand as a soloist and leader performing often with the Academy of Ancient Music and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
‘Released to mark the 300th anniversary of Corelli’s death, this album is certainly a celebration of his colourful music.’ – Classic FM
‘Delightfully amiable, effervescent performances of all twelve concertos recorded with an enjoyable level of warmth and detail. I’ve enjoyed these a lot.’ – BBC Radio 3 CD Review
