A Baroque Extravaganza

The iconic baroque quartet Red Priest, described in the New York Times as “the wildly virtuosic little band”, performs a thrilling programme of 17th and 18th century masterworks in its inimitable, high energy style.

Piers Adams – recorders
Julia Bishop – violin
Angela East – cello
David Wright – harpsichord

Featuring highlights from a 25-year international career at the cutting edge of early music performance including:

Vivaldi – Concerto in G minor ‘La Notte’
Telemann – ‘Gypsy’ Sonata in A minor
Bach – Toccata and Fugue in D minor
Handel – The Harmonious Blacksmith Variations

"Quite brilliant... some of the most extraordinary instrumental playing you're likely to hear." - Gramophone

"Anyone yet to encounter Red Priest should be alerted to their performances coming with a health warning. Purists might blanch at what they do with music of the Baroque, but the rest of us can revel in their exuberance, irreverence and dazzling virtuosity." - The Daily Telegraph

"Ferociously enjoyable... Superb musicians lie behind their affectionate stylistic tricks... I loved it all." - The Times
