Apollo’s Fire presents: “Mediterranean Nights: Sultry Songs & Passionate Dances from Italy & Spain”. This performance offers a program of saucy and scintillating love songs from Italy and Spain, performed with Apollo’s Fire’s inimitable style.
Named for the classical god of music and the sun, Apollo’s Fire was founded in 1992 by the award- winning young harpsichordist and conductor Jeanette Sorrell, who envisioned an ensemble dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various Affekts or passions in the listeners. Apollo’s Fire is a collection of creative artists who share Sorrell’s passion for drama and rhetoric.
Hailed as “one of America’s leading baroque orchestras” (The Boston Globe), and “a front-runner among America’s finest baroque orchestras” (The Independent, London), Apollo’s Fire enjoys sold- out performances at its subscription series in Cleveland. The ensemble has toured throughout North America, performing at venues such as the Aspen Music Festival, the Boston Early Music Festival series, the Library of Congress, the Ojai International Festival in California, and the Chautauqua Institution. The ensemble recently completed an 11-concert national tour of the Monteverdi Vespers.
Apollo’s Fire made its European debut tour in November 2010, to standing ovations in Spain and the Netherlands, and a sold-out crowd at London’s Wigmore Hall, where the concert was broadcast by the BBC. This season, Apollo’s Fire tours internationally with countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, with engagements in Bordeaux, Madrid and Lisbon, as well as Boston, Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
