Album information

Opus 2 & 4: Chamber Sonatas marks the third recording in a series which will see The Avison Ensemble record Corelli's complete chamber music celebrating the 300th anniversary of the composer's death in 2013.

Popular since their publication, Corelli's two sets of chamber sonatas are a pinnacle of Baroque Italian instrumental music.  They demonstrate a superior level of craftsmanship; they are of the highest quality, exquisitely refined and a good example of perfection in music.

Corelli’s contribution to the history of violin performance was immense. All six of his published collections of instrumental music demonstrate his exceptional skill as a violinist and composer, but it was in his chamber sonatas that he first used what was to be known as the ‘Corelli clash’.
