HARRY DADSWELL enjoys a competent CUCO performance, but wishes they could just be a bit more, well, daring.

CUCO: Mendelssohn, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Italian Symphony, and Beethoven: Violin Concerto

Stephanie Gonley takes a no-nonsense approach to the Romantic greats which set CUCO on fire for HARRY HICKMORE
