An Appalachian Gathering
Apollo’s Fire from Cleveland is America’s pre-eminent Baroque orchestra. It is also one of the most creative. In Sugarloaf Mountain: An Appalachian Gathering, the ensemble looks beyond Bach and the other masters of the Baroque to explore the music of America’s Appalachian region. This is music filled with beautiful eloquence and infectious energy. Calling it an “ingenious conception,” a Cleveland reviewer wrote, “Haunting melodies, foot-stomping jigs and reels, stories, and a healthy dose of comedy, all with musicianship of the highest order."
