Cornucopia CD

Back to Recordings page

The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado’s first CD, Cornucopia features the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado performing a variety of music from the 17th and 18th centuries, with selections by Handel, Telemann, Leclair, Muffat, and Avison.

“What a wonderfully joyous collection. As fans of BCOC have come to expect, the playing here is spot-on, energetic and sumptuously delivered. These rarely heard gems offer a nice cross-section of French, German and English Baroqe styles in readings that show the warmth and technical assurance of the ensemble's strings, highlighted by the terrific solo playing of Tekla Cunningham and Cynthia Miller-Freivogel. A worthy debut that cries out for an encore.”
—Marc Shulgold, former music critic, Rocky Mountain News
