Red Priest’s fantastic, all-new programme explores the connections between music of the great baroque masters and the wild folk musicians of Eastern Europe. The programme features a sonata and concerto by Telemann, stunning early baroque virtuosity from Bohemian composers Biber and Mielczewski, a suite of haunting melodies from the 1730 Uhrovska Collection, a distinctly English take on music of the East from Elizabethan composers Byrd and Nicholson, and works by Handel and the Red Priest himself, Antonio Vivaldi, re-imagined with dazzling gypsy bravura!
Their exciting programme, featuring all these great composers, will be given the inimitable Red Priest virtuosic make over.
