Corelli: Chamber Sonatas
Linn Records CKD-413 (2 CDs)
Corelli: Sonata da camera in D major, Op 4, No 4 (6:32)
Avison Ensemble / Pavlo Beznosiuk
The Avison Ensemble continue their stunning Corelli anniversary recording project with two of the less-often-recorded collections, the sonate da camera. Opus 2 and Opus 4 were published in Rome in 1685 and 1694, and they set the standard for the flowering of trio sonatas throughout Europe. 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.
