Apollo’s Fire launches the 30th Anniversary Season with a splash! Not your mother’s Four Seasons…. Jeannette Sorrell and Francisco Fullana become musical storytellers – celebrating along with the 18th-century Italian peasants, whose joys and sorrows Vivaldi described so vividly. Dueling cellists evoke Vivaldi’s “rock ’n roll” personality in the stormy Concerto for Two Cellos. The party ends in exuberant madness when the group whips up Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”).
 
PRE-CONCERT TALKS – with violinist Alan Choo. Watch the pre-recorded version at home beginning October 20, or attend in person 1 hour before each performance.
