Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium
Music - Classical
RED PRIEST – The Baroque Bohemians - are Piers Adams (recorders), Adam
Summerhayes (violin), Angela East (cello), David Wright (harpsichord).
They play baroque music with attitude as well as astonishing virtuosity.
In this programme, they explore the connections between gypsy musicians
and the master composers of the 17th and 18th centuries, including Handel,
Biber and, of course, Vivaldi. From the Eastern European folk influences
in the music of Telemann, to the recently discovered Uhrovska Collection
of gypsy dance tunes from 1730, Red Priest combines its trademark baroque
dynamism with true gypsy mayhem! “supreme musicians” The Observer
