Red Priest make a very welcome return to Haddo in their classic incarnation with founder member and violinist Julia Bishop rejoining Piers Adams (recorder), Angela East (cello) and David Wright (harpsichord).
This Baroque Extravaganza programme features many of their favourites from a quarter of a century of trailblazing baroque music performance: Bach, Handel, Telemann, Couperin and, of course, Vivaldi.
Red Priest – recently described in the New York Times as ‘the wildly virtuosic little band’ – has been at the cutting edge of baroque music performance for over a quarter of a century. Formed in 1997 by recorder virtuoso Piers Adams, together with violinist Julia Bishop, cellist Angela East and the late Julian Rhodes, harpsichord (a role now filled by David Wright) – and named after the original ‘red priest’ Antonio Vivaldi – the quartet has developed a truly unique style, combining high-energy performance, boundary crossing arrangements and theatrical presentation, delighting audiences across the globe.
