Repertoire for these themed events
Baroque 1600-1750 Music of Bach, Telemann, Handel
Baroque music is very popular due to it’s stately nature, well defined rhythms and harmonic structure, the music is well suited to creating an elegant and stately ambiance.
Classical Mozart, Haydn
Classical music has a spirit of refined elegance, yet whimsical with humor. (ie: Haydn’s “Surprise Symphony”)
Just as the designation reflects, romantic music creates a “tug on your heart strings” Romantic music is full of passion and sorrow, with tempi often moving forward “accelerando” or pulling back “ritardando”. This is some of my favorite repertoire which works well for receptions, parties or wedding prelude/postlude music.
If you like Monet and Renoir Paintings you’ll love the French Impressionists, Debussy, Ravel and Satie. Look at their paintings and the music follows along, giving the listener a cloudy, floating, dreamlike impression.
Internationally performing musicians from Miami and Naples come together to form Coconut Baroque, performing on period instruments and recreating the moods and sounds of 300 years ago. The ensemble seeks, through the use of original instruments, purity of tone and clarity of expressions to express the aesthetic values of the golden age of the Baroque. Let us transport you to a time of elegance and refinement.
