CONCERTO KÖLN is an ensemble of young musicians who have stamped their hallmark on the interpretation of music, mainly of the 16th and 17th centuries. Their collective skill, technique and drive certainly opens your ears to an innovative way of presenting familiar material. There is no conductor. Spontaneity within an outline of a common goal is the basis of their music-making. Each performance is a unique event. Live concerts are adventures in sight, sound, imagination and team spirit.

We Classical Music Collectors reserve a special place in our hearts for Box Sets. These are often collections which gather together the entire outputs of a performer or ensemble or label, allowing for an overview of the artists’ careers, filling gaps in our collections, or simply catching up on overlooked releases. This recent box set from the Capriccio label provides a welcome portrait of a very distinctive ensemble, Concerto Köln, who, unusually, have no conductor, only an artistic director. They specialise in Baroque music, but their repertoire extends up to Mendelssohn. Until recently there tended to be a perception that the classical era really only featured two worthwhile composers, Mozart and Haydn; releases such as this collection reveal just how wrong that impression is. The CDs that have been collected together in this economical box cover such composers as Vivaldi, the Neapolitan Francesco Durante, the sons of Bach, Mozart, French revolutionary symphonists Gossec and Davaux, the “Spanish Mozart” Arriaga (who was born fifty years to the day after Mozart), and an entire CD each of unfairly neglected classical-era composers Joseph Kraus and Gaetano Brunetti.
