Apollo's Fire, under founder and director Jeannette Sorrell, combines Telemann's imaginative Don Quixote Suite with other suites and concertos by the composer that reveal his cosmopolitan air and whimsical nature.
Tilting at windmills. The long-suffering Sancho Panza. Sighs of love for Dulcinea. The familiar and fanciful themes of the Don Quixote legend are brought to life by Apollo's Fire in Telemann's imaginative portrayal. The Don Quixote Suite sits alongside other suites and concertos by the composer that reveal his cosmopolitan air and whimsical nature.
