Handel: Concerti Grossi Opus 6 marked the Linn debut of the outstanding period instrument orchestra, The Avison Ensemble. Directed by Pavlo Beznosiuk, Britain’s foremost Baroque violin virtuosi, the ensemble presents a fresh and insightful performance of the Baroque masterpiece. This recording earned Opus d’Or and BBC Music Magazine ‘Choice’ accolades, was named a ‘Finalist’ at the 2011 Gramophone Awards and High Fidelity’s ‘Best Recording of 2010’. Handel’s Opus 6 is widely considered as one of the definitive examples of the concerto grosso form: their symphonic variety of color, texture and emotion sets them apart from other examples. The Avison Ensemble has frequently performed these works since its formation in 1985; this recording represents a culmination of its experience. Beznosiuk stated: ‘These new readings are a chance to revisit old and familiar friends and to reacquaint ourselves with Handel’s genius, but above all, to joyously revel in some of the greatest string music ever penned.”
