Oddly enough, even in this day and age, there’s classical music by composers that has still been unrecorded and basically undiscovered. Avison Ensemble specializes in early classical work and highlights Avison heavily as evidenced by this new release in this successful series. World premiere recordings of works created in the last years of his life, it a delightful find for those jaded ears that are thinking there’s nothing new under the classical sun to be found. Warmly played in period fashion with great attention to detail, this is one of those special treats it’s better to just enjoy than pick apart.
