CHARLES AVISON (1709-1770): Concertos after D. Scarlatti Nos. 3, 5, 6, 9, 11 & 12.
Catalogue Number: 10J028
Description: Avison produced in 1744 a dozen concerti grossi whose movements were transcribed from various movements of Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas (and, in several cases, movements composed by Avison himself). Avison was a popular and successful composer in his own right and he was excellent in capturing the spirit and fire as well as the delicacy of the Italian composer. Offered in our July 2004 catalogue. This release contains Alpha's 2007 catalogue as well. Café Zimmermann.
