Red Priest: The Baroque Bohemians

 

Red Priest: The Baroque Bohemians

On Wednesday 17th of October 2018
Starting at 7:30PM

The Baroque Bohemians

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!
