AVISON ENSEMBLE

 

We welcome the celebrated Avison Ensemble for the first time, all leading members of the Academy of Ancient Music, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and other major ‘historically informed’ ensembles. They present a programme tracing the huge influence of Italian composers on English musical life in the 17th and 18th Century.

 

England, and particularly London, was a magnet for foreign musicians, and concert audiences flocked to hear the latest musical styles as they arrived from continental Europe.

 

After his formative years in Rome where he played with the legendary Arcangelo Corelli, Handel moved to London where his assimilation of Italian style led to his dominance, particularly in the world of opera. Geminiani and Veracini were just two of many itinerant musicians who came to London in the 18th century seeking their fortune.

 

The ensemble’s namesake, Charles Avison, studied in London with Geminiani before becoming England’s most prolific producer of ‘Concerti Grossi’ and running an extremely successful and long-lived concert series in his home town of Newcastle-upon-

Tyne.
