Red Priest

Please note this event is sold out, please contact the Box Office if you wish to be added to the waiting list. Nightmare in Venice: a Baroque Fantasy Ghoulish delights from the fevered brains of Baroque masters including Vivaldi, Purcell, Bach, Gluck and Tartini. For over a decade the irrepressible musicians of Red Priest have been delighting audiences worldwide with their bold and original take on music of the Baroque. Playing from memory and creating a virtual orchestra from their four instruments, Red Priest’s dynamic presentation of programmes, with their legendary blend of creativity, wit, virtuosity, and astonishing energy, has given the group a unique position in the world of chamber music and helped to ensure their popularity throughout the world. ‘Red Priest is like no other early music instrumental ensemble you have ever heard... transforming Baroque clichés into vivid drama, often at terrific speed and with practised coordination.... [with] a bedrock of tremendous skill and timing.’ – Daily Telegraph The concert finishes at approximately 9.10pm
