Red Priest’s Winter Baroque Carnival
Piers Adams – recorders
Adam Summerhayes – violin
Angela East – cello
David Wright – harpsichord
The world-famous baroque quartet Red Priest, led by recorder playing maestro Piers Adams, present a cheering feast of music for all the family performed in their own inimitable, high-octane style!
Expect music by Vivaldi, Bach and Handel as well as a few unsung heroes, in a display of baroque brilliance with a modern twist. Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, Vivaldi’s Winter from the Four Seasons, Van Eyck’s Carol Variations and a suite from Handel’s Messiah provide a seasonal flavour.
“For sheer technical wizardry, charismatic showmanship and expressive devilment, Red Priest is in an exhilarating class of its own.” (BBC Music Magazine)
“Putting the rock into baroque… Energetic spectacular stage show… Invigorating versions of familiar Vivaldi pieces… The difference is clear: Red Priest have much more fun!” (The Evening Standard)
“Virtuosity, verve and creative spontaneity are fused together in a way that makes the impact positively volcanic.” (Daily Telegraph)
“An unorthodox quartet of virtuoso musicians on a mission to make classical music a visual as well as aural experience… supreme musicians.” (The Observer)
