Red Priest

Truly, Madly Baroque

Truly, Madly Baroque

Red Priest return in December. It is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the Cirque du Soleil. This extraordinary acoustic foursome has been described by music critics as ‘visionary and heretical’, ‘outrageous yet compulsive’, ‘wholly irreverent and highly enlightened’, ‘completely wild and deeply imaginative’, with a ‘red-hot wicked sense of humour’ and a ‘break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music’.

They will be performing a programme of Baroque masterpieces. Featured works include Bach's Brandenburg Concerto no.5, pieces by Handel and Locatelli, a transcription of Vivaldi's famous 4-violin concerto, an oboe concerto by Albinoni and the celebrated Canon and Gigue by Pachelbel - concluding with a psychedelic arrangement of Tartini's Devil's Trill sonata! It should be fun.
