Listening to music is always a journey for the listener but with the Ensemble Cicerone's new GENUIN CD, the composers were already adventurers people who, in the Baroque era, took to the dangerous roads on land and water all over Europe and ensured that musical styles met and mixed. The musicians of the ensemble, which bears in its name the great travel guidebooks Cicerone, teach at the Mozarteum and at the Cologne University of Music: they let the intricate paths of emotions arise before our inner ears in the wonderful music of Hδndel, Muffat, Telemann, and others and thus cast a spell on us. Better than Baedeker!
"... fascinating and admirably adventurous programme, sensitively played."
