Notes and Editorial Reviews
Concerto Koln - today the name of this ensemble of young musicians is synonymous with a special way of performing music, mainly of the 16th and 17th centuries. With impressive skills, technique and drive they certainly open your ears to what you thought was boringly familiar by making it sound like it had never sounded before. There is no conductor, spontaneity in action and accepting responsibilities for the common goal are asked for and make for the ultimate result. Each interpretation is a unique event. Live concerts are adventures for eyes and ears. Music for Concerto Koln is an exciting adventure with every member participating creatively by using his imagination, liveliness and team spirit. On the present album, the ensemble presents works by Vivaldi, Bach and his sons, Kraus, Mozart, and more.

Excerpts of select reviews of previously released volumes included in this set:

Italian Concertos - Durante, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Leo

This is a set that you can’t afford to pass up. Sensible size—17 players—sane tempos, and sure technique distinguish these performances by Concerto Köln under its leader for this collection, Werner Ehrhardt.

– Fanfare

Gossec: Symphonies / Werner, Concerto Koln

The two central works, each in three movements, are exceptionally compact while remaining gently amiable. This lively music heard in lively music-making. It draws on an amiable personality who mines both serene dignity and regal grace.
