Best Recording 2010, High Fidelity

Baroque Instrumental category Finalist

Opus d'Or Award

"...beautifully realized by the stunningly realistic, resoundingly vibrant sound engineering...Essential!" (, David Vernier, 2010)

Orchestral Choice: "I shall certainly return frequently to this splendid set." 4,5/5 stars (BBC Music Magazine, George Pratt, 2010)

"The Avison Ensemble has for several years been charming our ears with recordings of music by the Newcastle composer from whim it takes its name. Now it turns it attention to one of the greatest of all concerto sets, Handel's Opus 6. The spontaneity, variety and fluency of ideas are endlessly diverting and full of humour, wit and Handelian tenderness. Violinist and director, Pavlo Beznosiuk avoids anything in the nature of exaggerated gesture, preferring to capitalise upon the natural spaciousness and inherent grace of the music. If, on occasion he just fails to realise the sheer exuberance of some competitors then there is generous compensation in the ensemble's intuitive grasp of elegant phrasing and breadth of contour. Handel's expressive language developed through his experience in the theatre, and the range is both extended and vivid in contrast. The Avison Ensemble responds to it with affective warmth and communicative amiability. A satisfying set, pleasingly recorded." 5/5 stars (Classical Music Magazine, Nicholas Anderson, 2010)

The Avison Ensemble, directed by Pavlo Beznosiuk, present George Frideric Handel's complete Opus 6 Concerti Grossi on a three disc set. This work is widely regarded as the composer's greatest contribution to the Baroque period.
