Apollo’s Fire and Jeannette Sorrell team up with Spanish violin virtuoso Francisco Fullana and his 1735 Guarneri violin for this joyous romp through the countryside. Sorrell and Apollo’s Fire are known for bringing Vivaldi’s masterpiece to life as the revolutionary acts of musical storytelling the composer intended. From a lonely shepherd-boy on a hillside to a delightfully drunken harvest party and a thrilling fox-hunt, the musician-storytellers revel in the joys and sorrows of a time when people lived very close to nature. The album comes to a red-hot finish with a new recording of Sorrell’s arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”).
