A Night at Bach's Coffeehouse
Heralded for their “blend of scholarship and visceral intensity” (Gramophone), American chamber orchestra Apollo’s Fire returns to Boston in a program inspired by J. S. Bach’s lively performances at Zimmermann’s Coffeehouse. The 18th-century Leipzig café is famous for hosting concerts where Bach and his student orchestra liked to let their hair down! Director Jeannette Sorrell leads an ensemble of 18 instrumentalists in rousing concertos by Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann, and Bach’s beloved fourth and fifth Brandenburg Concertos.

Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm.

“Superlative music-making.”
—The Daily Telegraph
