Seasonal Special Happenings

Bach, Telemann & the Bohemian Gypsies

When: Wed., April 13 2011

From Bach to Gogol Bordello, there's something about gypsy music that lights up the soul. Apollo's Fire adds fuel to the gypsy conflagration this weekend in a series of five concerts, beginning with tonight's 7:30 performance in Chagrin Falls. Led by guest director, flutist, and student of early music Matthias Maute, the concerts juxtapose reconstructed gypsy pieces from the first half of the 18th century with the Bach and Telemann concertos that Maute believes they influenced. Passionate, exuberant, and intimate, the concerts feature Jeanette Sorrell as harpsichord soloist with Maute and Kathie Steward as flute and flauto traverso soloists. Tonight's concert is at the Federated Church, 76 Bell St. in Chagrin Falls; additional performances will be held in Akron, Cleveland Heights, and Rocky River. Ticket prices are $21 to $65; snag them by phone at 800-314-2535 or online at, where you'll also find schedule and venue details. — Cicora
