LCMS - Red Priest 'The Baroque Bohemians'

Piers Adams recorders
Adam Summerhayes violin
Angela East cello
David Wright harpsichord
Red Priest present a fantastical new programme exploring the connections between music of great baroque masters and the wild folk musicians of Eastern Europe.

Featured is a sonata and concerto by Telemann, stunning early baroque virtuosity from Bohemian composers Biber and Mielczewski, and a suite of haunting melodies from the 1730 Uhrovska Collection. There is also 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! |
