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.
