In its most explosive programme to date, Red Priest explores the connections real and imagined between gypsy musicians and the master composers of the 17th and 18th centuries. How might the music of Handel or Vivaldi sound in the hands of an 18th century (or more modern) gypsy band? Exploring the Eastern European folk influences ever present in the music of Telemann and the recently discovered tunes from 1730, Red Priest combines its trademark baroque dynamism with true gypsy mayhem!
