Album Summary

>Avison, Charles : Concerti (12) for Strings after Domenico Scarlatti
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The British composer Charles Avison became acquainted with the music of Scarlatti through a production of his opera in London in 1720. He thought that Scarlatti might justly be ranked among the great masters of the age. Avison's concerto grossi are inspired by Scarlatti and some use material that he borrowed from "the great master." These concerti are rare gems from the 18th century and reinforce the notion that Avison was one of the most important concerto composers during that century.
