RED PRIEST

Wednesday 17th October 2018 - 7:30 pm

THE BAROQUE BOHEMIANS


WORLD FAMOUS BAROQUE QUARTET PLAYS TELEMANN, HANDEL, BYRD etc.


Music by Vivaldi, Telemann, Handel, Biber, Byrd, Mielczewski and Hungarian folk melodies

Gypsy Fever from Campsite to Court!

The world-famous baroque quartet led by ‘superhuman’ recorder player Piers Adams and the devilish fiddler, Adam Summerhayes, transform into a wild ‘baroque gypsy’ band.
They re-live the extraordinary virtuosity of early Bohemian Baroque masters, explore melodies from a 1730 Slovakian fiddler’s tune-book, revel in the gypsy-influenced music of Telemann, and re-imagine music by Handel and the original Red Priest, Antonio Vivaldi – all in their own inimitable, high-octane style.
Positively volcanic!
