GRAMMY®-winners Apollo’s Fire and Jeannette Sorrell set sparks flying as dueling soloists square off in double-concertos. In Vivaldi’s fiery Concerto for Two Cellos, hear why Sorrell thinks of Vivaldi as the “rock-n-roll composer of the 18th century”. The program includes Bach’s beloved Brandenburg Concerto no. 3, Bach’s darkly brooding Violin Concerto in D Minor featuring Francisco Fullana, Vivaldi’s dramatic Concerto in A Minor for Two Violins, and selections from Bach’s Orchestral Suite no. 3 in D.
