Charles Avison’s set of Twelve Concertos, Op.9 was published in London in 1766. Written in four parts, the composer invites the use of keyboard (notably organ) as a replacement for the violin as the concertino soloist. The music is elegant and easy-going, which is reflected in the pleasingly polished and stylish performances by the Georgian Concert, who play the slightly melancholy slow movements with grace and charm. Their double-dotting, however, could ideally be a shade crisper, and allegros given more bite (although the finale of No. 8 dances agreeably). The recording is natural and the ambience just right and, with the reservations expressed above, this makes enjoyable relaxed listening.
