Notes & Reviews:

This fourth recording in the series on Divine Art devoted to the music of Charles Avison (1709-1770) is a labor of love for the ensemble named after him. The cellist of the ensemble discovered this music hidden away in the back of a cupboard. Excited by the originality and freshness, he formed the Avison Ensemble with the aim of enhancing public awareness of Avison.

The rediscovery of Charles Avison (1709 -1770) has been one of the highlights for the last few years for the English lover of baroque music; this is the fourth 2 CD set in the survey of his chamber and orchestral music by The Avison Ensemble, directed by Pavlo Beznosiuk (whose disc of the cello concertos of John Garth has been our best seller); this is music of the middle baroque period inspired by Geminiani and Scarlatti amongst others, but with a very distinct hand. The series will conclude with the opus 5 and 7 sonatas in the spring of 2010
