Description: Corelli was the most popular composer in England; Geminiani was his pupil; Avison was Geminiani's pupil - so guess who Avison's first set of sonatas sounds like? Much later, in 1767, he had investigated Rameau, C.P.E. Bach and Scarlatti, resulting in a much more original sounding style in his Op. 8, whose string accompaniment is practically an orchestral accompaniment to the concertante keyboard. 2 CDs. The Avison Ensemble.
