03 Nov Red Priest: The Baroque Bohemians
Thursday 21 December 2017, 7.30pm
Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge
by kind permission of the Master and Fellows of Trinity College
Piers Adams – recorders
Adam Summerhayes – violin
Angela East – cello
David Wright – harpsichord
Music by Vivaldi, Telemann, Handel, Biber, Byrd, Mielczewski and Hungarian folk melodies.
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!
“An unorthodox quartet of virtuoso musicians on a mission to make classical music a visual as well as aural experience… supreme musicians.” (The Observer)
