The release of Concerti Grossi Opus 6 marks the beginning of Linn and The Avison Ensemble’s commitment to record Corelli’s complete chamber music.

Arcangelo Corelli was one of the shining geniuses of the baroque era and his twelve Concerti Grossi are considered among the very best of Italian baroque output.

The twelve Concerti Grossi demonstrate an austere grandeur and a never-ending invention which is never routine.

The Avison Ensemble will release three further recordings of Corelli in 2013 which will mark the 300th anniversary of the composer’s death.

Known as the ‘Father of the Concerto Grosso’ Corelli showcased the form’s potential, popularised it, and wrote the first great music for it, although he did not actually invent the

form!

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's accounts under Pavlo Beznosiuk have a natural, easy virtuosity that will endear them to purists...’ The Sunday Times

‘...the Avisons achieve what every composer hopes for their music, namely the ability to move the listener's spirit. Bravo.’ BBC Online

‘The ensemble playing is simply electrifying, crackling and sparking with the kind of head-on accents and lilting rhythmic lift that this music requires but rarely enjoys.’ ClassicToday.com
