Notes and Editorial Reviews
Apollo’s Fire, the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra founded in 1992 by award-winning harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell, launches a major new association with Avie that exemplifypies "the intense detailing Sorrell and company bring to music from the Baroque and Classical eras." -
The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
These vibrant performances of varied works by J.S. Bach feature popular repertoire brought together in pairings that have not appeared on disc before. The 2-CD Bach set takes the ever-popular Brandenburg Concertos, and uniquely couples them with two Harpsichord Concertos, one of which is also presented in a reconstruction for violin.
Taking its name from the classical god of music and
the sun, Apollo’s Fire is dedicated to the performance of 17th and 18th-century music on period instruments. Founder and Music Director Jeannette Sorrell and her ensemble of dynamic and creative early-music artists from North America and Europe have been praised internationally for stylistic freshness and buoyancy, animated spontaneity, technical excellence, and creative programming.
