Jeannette Sorrell performs with Francisco Fullana and Apollo's Fire

Grammy winners 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 baroque countryside. Through many tour performances in the past decade, 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… from a thrilling fox-hunt to the icy freeze of winter… the musician-storytellers revel in the joys and sorrows of a time when people lived very close to nature. The concert comes to a climactic finish with Sorrell’s arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”).
