Album: Corelli Opus 6: Concerti Grossi – Avison Ensemble/Beznosiuk (Linn)


Arcangelo Corelli's Concerti Grossi were published posthumously. The composer dubbed "arcomelo" (melodious bow) had achieved considerable success in Italy, but only after his death in 1713 would his music be internationally revered.

What emerges in Pavlo Beznosiuk's supple performance with the Avison is music of immense suavity and elegance – from the enchanting Largo of the 6th, to the tender pastoral of the Christmas Concerto.
