Reviews

Baroque as a pulsating present

»Noble and fragile at the same time. It represents the entire CoCo sound, the almost etching clarity in contrast to the previous well padded shadiness in the performance practice of baroque music.«

As Crisp As In the Old Days

»Händel’s “Water Music” is on of the most popular works of classical music and CoCo performed the suite with such an infectious vigor that the joy immediately spread to the huge crowd in the old church.«
5 out of 6 stars

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.«
