RED PRIEST

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 Piers Adams, recorders Julia Bishop, violin Angela East, cello Howard Beach, harpsichord Stolen masterworks and long-lost jewels of the baroque era performed with swashbuckling virtuosity. Red Priest returns with a programme that explores one of the most colourful periods in music history. The leading musicians from the Baroque era were pioneers and adventurers, riding the seas of change with wild abandon, ever searching for new musical treasures to titillate the ears and move the souls of the public. Red Priest explores musical piracy amongst baroque composers including Vivaldi, Albinoni, Tartini, Handel, Bach and Leclair, as well as the less well-known Simonetti and Giazotto. ‘The UK's most dynamic, theatrical and outrageously different baroque ensemble…Red Priest has the fire, technical ability and sheer daring to bring it off…brilliant and inspired musicianship.’ Gramophone The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm
