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.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
What the Avison Ensemble offers in this new release is a new gold standard for Corelli performance. They are all very good. The violinists of the Avison Ensemble, Pavlo Beznosiuk and Caroline Balding, take these works to a new and richer level. Every time I've listened to this new release I hear nuances and phrases that demonstrate for me a much more innate understanding of Corelli's musical language than I have heard in earlier performances. Another plus to this performance is the elegant and inventive continuo players (Richard Tunnicliffe, vc; Paula Chateauneuf, archlute; Roger Hamilton, hpsi and org).
