Apollo's Fire and A Night at Bach's Coffeehouse
As performed in sold-out concerts at Tanglewood and the BBC Proms (2015), “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse” presents Apollo’s Fire and director/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell in music of J.S. Bach and his most admired colleagues. Inspired by the lively coffeehouse concerts led by Bach in 18th-century Leipzig – fiery strings, colorful recorders and a dizzying harpsichord solo… an evening of rampant virtuosity!
Recorded at the Tanglewood Festival, July 2, 2015.
