Reviews

'The Avison Ensemble continue their stunning Corelli anniversary recording project with two of the less-often-recorded opuses, the 'sonate da camera'. These performances occupy fresh ground—intimately styled and seemingly less obviously inspired by public performance than previous recordings … Pavlo 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. The tempi are relaxed without compromising a sense of line, imparting instead a breadth that suggests to us an expression of Corelli's life and times … we look forward to the imminent release of Opp 1 and 3' (Gramophone)» More

'The [Avison Ensemble's] series so far has produced fine accounts of the Concerti Grossi Op 6 and the Violin Sonatas Op 5. The latest two-disc set features the Trio Sonata collections Opp 2 and 4, kaleidoscopic works that mingle vigorous and elegant dances, hypnotic variations like the ‘Ciaconna' that concludes the Op 2 set, ornamental slow movements, capricious Allegros and more serious fugal writing … the Avison Ensemble captures their essence in graceful, finely controlled performances—by turns lyrical, fleet, playful, imbued with an effortless style that eschews mannerisms and fireworks but rather lets the music speak for itself. The string sound is silky and clean; the ensemble neat and subtly articulated' (BBC Music Magazine)» More

'The virtues of the Avison group are once again on full display here; the players achieve a sparkling liveliness in the fast movements that few other groups seem to manage with period strings' (AllMusic, USA)» More
