The Avison Ensemble

The Avison Ensemble is one of England’s foremost exponents of 18th century music on period instruments. It is named after Charles Avison (1709–1770), the Newcastle-born composer, conductor and organist, ‘the most important English concerto composer of the 18th Century’ (New Grove).

In addition to playing other works from the Baroque and early Classical periods, The Avison Ensemble is also a training ground for young up and coming musicians to gain experience at period performance practice and styles, affording them the opportunity to work with outstanding directors and soloists. The Ensemble has an active outreach programme involving thousands of children each year in music education projects throughout the North East.

The Avison Ensemble’s recording of the complete works of Charles Avison on both the Naxos and Divine Art labels has been exceptionally well received. Their recording of Six Cello Concertos by John Garth has been a sensational success, having been reprinted several times during the first year of its release and is regularly played on Classic FM. In 2009, The Avison Ensemble released their acclaimed first recording on Linn Records: Handel’s Concerti Grossi Opus 6 (Linn CKD 362). This work is widely regarded as the composer’s greatest contribution to the Baroque period and the recording received critical acclaim.

In addition to numerous appearances in the English regions, The Avison Ensemble has also appeared to critical acclaim at St. John’s, Smith Square in London and at the Hallé Handel Festival in Germany. Recently, the Ensemble has performed at St. James’ Palace in London with the choir of Her Majesty the Queen’s Chapel Royal and were the largest orchestra in the opening concert series at the new London concert hall, Kings Place, performing Beethoven’s Triple Concerto as part of an all Beethoven programme on period instruments.
