attended Voices of Music: Virtuoso Baroque Concertos on Mar 19 2017

Fantastic concert of the most wonderfully beautiful Stabat Mater by such talented early music musicians and singers. Only problem was that the pews at the Berkeley venue were so very uncomfortable.

Excellent musicians, interesting program based on Leonardo da Vinci's life and music he would have heard at different periods, interlaced with a poem. Entertaining, informative, unusual Renaissance instruments provided a great evening of...continued

attended The Splendor of Venice on Jan 22 2006

The selections and the performances were all superb. We enjoyed every moment of the concert. However, we thought it was extremely hard to hear the preconcert lecture, and the speech was disorganized. If there were any CD's from the conductor we...continued

attended A Baroque Christmas on Dec 20 2009

We echo the comments of bittercat. We also planned for several weeks to attend this concert. We even invited friends who were introduced to goldstar with this poorly planned oversold concert. We were stuck in the foyer, next to a wall. We could...continued

Baroque French art songs and a fun evening; who'd a thunk it. The tack adopted was of a story of love, leading to the marriage ceremony through the lens of subject matter related songs by various composers of the period. All was presented through...continued

attended Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale: Bach’s Mass in B Minor on Dec 02 2011

The quality of the music was quite good (not excellent) as was the quality of the voices.

Unfortunately, I found the concert to be incredibly boring, as did my girlfriend.

We left after intermission, something that I haven't done in a long...continued

attended Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra: Winds and Waves on Mar 27 2009

this performance, like all PBO performances, was extremely enjoyable. First-rate musicianship, excellent program choices, etc. The reason we gave only 3 stars is that the ushers let people enter throughout the first half, and some of the second. ...continued

exceptional quality, high spirits, and somewhat unusual. We would not have thought of the recorder as a virtuoso instrument.

PBO really brings music of the past to life. Hearing the familiar Beethoven Concerto on period instruments was a revelation.
