Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Popular since their publication, Corelli's two sets of chamber sonatas are a pinnacle of Baroque Italian instrumental music. Opus 2 & 4: Chamber Sonatas marks the third recording in a series that sees The Avison Ensemble record Corelli's complete chamber music celebrating the 300th anniversary of the composer's death in 2013.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
These performances occupy fresh ground - intimately styled and seemingly less obviously inspired by public performance than previous recordings...Beznosiuk and the Avison Ensemble have clearly given much thought and attention to their performances: beautifully understated, and allowing the music to speak for itself.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: St George's Church, Chesterton, Cambridge, England (2010-01-11_2010-01-15&2012-).
