European Union Baroque Orchestra/Riccardo Minasi

KuK 110 c. 80 Mins, Bad Homburg Castle, October 2012

A disc of enormous, palpable vitality from a live concert. We have enjoyed the EUBO's visits to UK in 2006 & 2011.

The acoustic at Bad Homburg is resonant and the music balances rarities with familiar masaterworks.

The feeling of the disc is conveyed by the Telegraph:

Rarely have I seen so much smiling communication and listening between musicians on a concert stage

If that makes you think that K&K should extend their activities to DVDs, so say I !
