For sheer affability of sentiment, good humour and harmonic warmth this set of concertos beats almost any other that I know. Perhaps there is nothing memorable here, certainly taken as a whole there are fewer song-like melodies than can be found in Albinoni's Opp. 7 and 9, for instance, but from the occasion when I first heard these concertos, about 12 years ago, they have remained firmly in my affection. Albinoni's Op. 10 Concertos, 12 of them, and all for strings, were discovered comparatively recently in Sweden by a Dutch musicologist, I think.

…From this background material Handel made something completely new, with rich, unusual sound effects in the strings. Banzo's group Al Ayre Español, which does not at all restrict itself to Spanish music, catches this kind of unusual moment quite vividly. It's a specialist group of the best kind, the kind that aims at general audiences and puts across fairly arcane material by dint of sheer musicality. An ideal choice for those who want to get deeper into how Handel's London audiences heard his music.

For their new album, Concerto Köln have tracked down yet another gem of the Baroque era. Their journey takes us to England, to the composer Charles Avison and his arrangements of Domenico Scarlatti’s harpsichord sonatas, which represents a milestone in British music history – beautifully interpreted here by one of the leading ensembles in the field of historical performance practice. Charles Avison is not exactly that what one would call a “popular composer”. He hardly plays any role whatsoever in the musical scene, the Bielefelder Katalog has documented only a handful of performances of his works and he surfaces rather sporadically within the expanse of musicology. It is basically due to historical performance practice that attention is once again being drawn to his works. And indeed: it is worth it!
