Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
From Cleveland, OH, Apollo's Fire is that musical city's critically acclaimed Baroque chamber orchestra, boasting a roster of skilled early music performers and a full array of period instruments. Led by founder Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo's Fire ventures into the Classical repertoire with this all-Mozart disc.

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
From Cleveland, OH, Apollo's Fire is that musical city's critically acclaimed Baroque chamber orchestra, boasting a roster of skilled early music performers and a full array of period instruments. Led by founder Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo's Fire ventures into the Classical repertoire with this all-Mozart disc. These crisp performances follow period practices, and offer exceptional color and dynamic variety. The "Symphony No. 35, Haffner," is quite polished, yet it is also warm and inviting, always a plus in the realm of authentic interpretations. Sorrell elicits elegant lines and shapes the melodies with awareness of their mannerisms, yet the music is genuinely emotional within Mozart's stylistic boundaries. In the "Symphony No. 41, Jupiter," the ensemble is spry and shimmering, with none of the heaviness so often applied to this Olympian work. If there is one astonishing track on this disc, it is the glorious Molto allegro, which Apollo's Fire executes with excitement and brilliance, and with transparent colors in the movement's fantastic stretto. Apparently provided as filler but wholly engaging, the "Overture to Don Giovanni" receives the most dramatic reading, and suggests that the ensemble can be as powerful in Mozart's darker works as it is delightful in his brighter music. Koch's recording is clear and resonant.
