Coro Allegro brings to light Baroque-era gems, both timeless and rare. Hear one of J.S. Bach’s most beautifully faceted masterworks alongside newly unearthed jewels by his contemporaries. Be mesmerized by the graceful virtuosic complexity of Maria Teresa Agnesi, discover the harmonic inventiveness of Czech composer Jan Dismas Zelenka’s Dixit Dominus, and enjoy the expressive and elegant offertory from "la virtuosa di Venezia" Anna Bon. Prepare to expand your perspective on Baroque music even further through RUMBARROCO's fusion of Iberian early music with the popular and folk music of Latin America.
