Laurels To Modern Baroque Orchestra

»A modern oboe concerto for Baroque orchestra with historical instruments? An excellent idea! The result was both beautiful and fascinating. [...] The concert deserved so much a large laurel wreath, because we have here some venerable heroes in both the composer and the orchestra. The next 25 years [...] is certainly more than promising.«

The Morning We Were Shepherds

The Morning We Were Shepherds

Picture book and concert Kan you publish a book with and about baroque music for children? We have tried! So here is a picture book told by Tea Bendix and Poul Høxbro, designed by Tea Bendix and with an embedded CD with French and English Baroque music performed by Concerto Copenhagen, led by Poul Høxbro and Lars Ulrik Mortensen. The book is published in collaboration with Forlaget Carlsen in connection with Concerto Copenhagen's 25th anniversary 2016. See a read-through here... See the full press release about the book here (PDF)... The book is for sale or can be ordered from the country's bookstores. It can also be purchased at most of Concerto Copenhagen concerts. The book can also be ordered from Concerto Copenhagen while stocks last. Price: 200 kr. + postage. Write to kirsten@coco.dk. See video interviews and reviews of the book further down the page! And it is also a concert! During the concert Poul Høxbro tells the story of the book in a free and vivid way while playing pibe and tabor together with an ensemble of musicians from Concerto Copenhagen. The book's illustrations and a lot of extra material are projected on the big screen. The children are given time to ask questions, and more. Target audience: age 5-8 years Duration: 35-45 minutes The concert works for groups from 1-4 school classes at a time. You will need a relatively powerful LCD projector and a screen, which require some blackout. Price: As agreed, can be arranged best in cooperation with a library, cultural center or similar, which will be responsible for the majority of the economy.
