The appearance of this splendid 2 CD set should help to rekindle interest in the work of Charles Avison, an unjustly neglected master of the English baroque. This Newcastle born composer penned no less than 560 concerto grossi in the years between 1747 and 1769, and 18 of these elegant Italianate creations have been expertly revived here by the ensemble which bears his name.
