 I can not remember October 3, 2012 By Anthony G. (Valley Stream, NY) See All My Reviews "I can not remember when I have enjoyed music so much. I opened the plastic and played this last night expecting competent, stirring music, and surely captivating. All of this and more. This music is extraordinarily brilliant. At times, I thought I was listening to Handel, Bach, or Vivaldi, and, one will be shocked to read this, I found many of Avison's pieces, not just indistinguishable, but surpassing these other composers. If you buy no other Baroque CD this year, make this your choice." Report Abuse
