The Op. 5 collection consists of eleven sonatas; the twelfth, and most popular, work is a series of twenty three variations on the ‘Follia’ of which Corelli was especially proud.

All twelve pieces contain a variety of difficult violin techniques and director Pavlo Beznosiuk takes centre stage; his polished playing thrilling in its virtuosity.

Corelli’s contribution to the history of violin performance was immense. All six of his published collections of instrumental music demonstrate his exceptional skill as a violinist and composer, but it was in his Op.5

Sonatas that Corelli had the most significant impact on violin technique.

This marks the second recording in a series which will see Linn and The Avison Ensemble record Corelli’s complete chamber music. The Avison Ensemble will release two further recordings of Corelli in 2013

celebrating the 300th anniversary of the composer’s death.

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 comprises some of Europe's leading Baroque musicians, including artists from The Hague, Germany, France, Austria and London, with international soloists from all over the globe.

Pavlo Beznosiuk, the UK's foremost baroque violin virtuoso, is in demand as a soloist and orchestral leader performing regularly with the Academy of Ancient Music and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

The Avison Ensemble press :

‘The Avison Ensemble offer suave, personable performances, allowing this exquisitely engaging music to do its own work.’ The Sunday Times

‘What emerges in Pavlo Beznosiuk’s supple performance with the Avison Ensemble is music of immense suavity and elegance – from the enchanting Largo of the 6th, to the tender pastoral of the Christmas Concerto.’ The Independent
