Apollo’s Fire and Jeannette Sorrell set sparks flying in this program that heads to Carnegie Hall following local performances. Bach’s beloved Brandenburg Concerto no. 3
meets Vivaldi’s Concerto in A Minor for Two Violins
, featuring Olivier Brault and Susanna P. Gilmore. In Vivaldi’s fiery Concerto for Two Cellos
, cellists René Schiffer and Mimé Brinkmann show why AF thinks of Vivaldi as the “rock-n-roll composer of the 18th century.”
Choose your version! On Mar. 19-20, the program includes selections from Bach’s Orchestral Suite no. 2 & 3. On Mar. 18 and 22, Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana performs Bach’s extraordinary Violin Concerto in D Minor.
