About This Program
Considered the most beautiful and dynamic of all the instruments at the time, the human voice was the main point of reference for Baroque composers. Whether it was a sinfonia for strings or a wind concerto, the music was meant to sing or sometimes even speak. In this program, the COT presents the works of four different Baroque masters, each one with a very individual musical language, but all taking inspiration from the same source.
