Komödiantische Musik des Barock
“Harnoncourt's 1969 survey of 17th-century programme music at last surfaces complete. It fully lives up to its billing, never overdoing the silliness even in Schmelzer's zaniest moments.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2008 ****

Compositions descriptive of battles form a minor but distinctive category of music from the 16th to the early 19th centuries. Battle music in the Baroque period was appreciated for its expressive and dramatic potential. It often used fragments of real military music, as well as the obvious trumpet fanfares and rallying cries. The potent and acclaimed cornetto ensemble Concerto Palatino team up with some of Montreal's finest early music performers to whip up a storm in these Baroque battle scenes.
