Named for the Greek god of music (and often mischief) and led by award-winning harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo's Fire performs early music repertoire with a winning combination of style, imagination, and virtuosity. The ensemble's recording of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, the pinnacle of Baroque-era composition, has been praised as "a swaggering version...brilliantly played" (The Times, London) and "lively and unfailingly attractive—the best in what historical performance can be" (American Record Guide). The program also includes selections from the exuberant Dresden Concerti by Bach's contemporary, Johann David Heinichen.
