Apollo’s Fire Plays Lots of Bach at Lots of Churches

And a music hall. Look, of course Cleveland is obviously and justifiably proud of the Cleveland Orchestra, which remains monumental and acclaimed and revered and in demand wherever it goes, be it Severance or Miami or Vienna. This is a tremendous thing; Franz Welser-Most and his charges deserve all of the applause and hosannas that they attract. And yet – the full orchestra experience is not always the way one wants to go. It can, in truth, be a little overwhelming. Sometimes you just aren’t feeling the bassoon. Apollo’s Fire, the eleven-member Cleveland Baroque Orchestra, has also rocked – erm, okay, maybe not “rocked”, per se, but you understand – smaller houses both here and abroad, and they’re bringing a slew of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos to venues all around the city this weekend. Mostly churches, yes. And a music hall. (FULL ARTICLE: Donald Rosenberg, Cleveland Plain Dealer)
