Music Department Residency
Led by charismatic harpsichord virtuoso Jeanette Sorrell, Cleveland’s famed early music ensemble channels the music of Bach, Telemann and Vivaldi.
“A vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music.” BBC
Bach’s Coffeehouse including:
Bach Overture No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067 (for flute and strings)
Telemann Don Quixote Suite
Vivaldi Flute Concerto no. 3 in D Major, RV 428 “Il Gardellino”
Admired on both sides of the Atlantic, Cleveland-based early music ensemble Apollo’s Fire is Baroque music in its unbuttoned state, led by charismatic harpsichord virtuoso Jeanette Sorrell. Inspired by the 18th-century Leipzig coffeehouse where Bach and his student orchestra played lively concertos, a chamber sextet from the orchestra treats listeners to fiery strings, colorful recorders and Sorrell’s dizzying solos in works by Bach, Telemann and Vivaldi.
