22 of 22 people found the following review helpful By DAVID BRYSON TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 1, 2004
Format: Audio CD
Charles Avison was twenty-four years younger than Handel and twenty-three years older than Haydn. He was a Geordie, born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He went to London at an early age to receive lessons from Geminiani, himself a pupil of Corelli, and got himself into a spot of controversy by his robust claim that Geminiani was a better composer than Handel. The latter still dominated the London musical scene to a surprising extent even after his death and up to the time of Avison's own -- pasticcio-Handel oratorios such as Gideon were still being churned out -- and whether or not for that reason the ambitious Avison did not try to exorcise Handel's musical ghost from the capital but returned to the north, dying there in prosperous circumstances in 1770 at the age of 61.

These twelve concertos were published in 1758, one year before Handel died. When they were written I don't know, but there is a definite sense of change and development in their style. The first six are all in the standard slow-quick-slow-quick format customary in the trio sonatas of Handel and other contemporaries. Of the remaining six only # 8 is to this pattern, and the style is definitely altering as well. The final gavotte-like `tempo moderato' of # 11 has a definite suggestion of Gluck to my ears, but in general what the idiom is starting to suggest is that of J C Bach, the so-called `London Bach', the sense of this being strongest in the opening movement of # 12, the longest piece in the entire set. It is all very pleasant stuff, not `great' music by any stretch of the term, but not routine or mechanical either.

As I am in general agreement with David Bryson I can be brief. Charles Avison was all but forgotten, his only work that was in the calalogue was his 12 Concerti Grossi following the lessons ( keyboard sonatas ) of Domenico Scarletti. We should be thankful to The Avison Ensemble and Naxos for his revival, as well as this opus 6 they have recorded opus 3 and opus 4. This CD is well played, spirited, crisp and clear, and the music is not trivial, as least as good as his mentor's, Geminiani, later works. Like Geminiani many of the outer movements are melodic and lyrical. Opus 6 was published in 1758, late in the baroque period, and I agree that it improves as the disc progresses, with the final 3 or 4 concertos sounding a bit like the string concertos of C P E Bach? Unlikely, they were written about 10 years later. David Bryson suggests J C Bach, but he did not arrive in London untill 4 years after. Perhaps we should say they sound like a maturing Charles Avison.
I am happy to give it 5 stars, and look forward to more Avison, especially late works.

and was delighted to discover this CD set. The concertos of Avison's Op. 6 might not be masterpieces but they certainly deserve to be played and recorded more than they are. The playing here is superb, lively and affectionate. Good on Naxos for giving us a chance to hear the music at a reasonable price. I must admit I can't find any of C P E Bach's quirkiness here, but there is perhaps a touch of the London Bach. Also Geminiani. And even Handel himself. I hope to be able to find more Avison on CD at affordable prices. Highly recommended.
