APOLLO'S FIRE: VIVALDI'S FOUR SEASONS REDISCOVERED 

EUROPEAN TOUR SEND OFF CONCERT

Saturday, April 8, 2023

7:30 PM

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”).

 

Join Apollo's Fire for a festive send-off as their musicians warm up for their European tour. – Or better yet, plan to come with them! London (UK), Heidelberg (Germany), and more…!
