The Baroque Bohemians: Gypsy Fever from Campsite to Court

The world-famous baroque  quartet led by “superhuman” recorder player Piers Adams and the devilish fiddler, Adam Summerhayes, transform into a wild ‘baroque gypsy’ band. They re-live the extraordinary virtuosity of early Bohemian Baroque masters, explore melodies from a 1730 Slovakian fiddler’s tune book, revel in the gypsy-infused music of Telemann, and re-imagine music by Handel and the original Red Priest, Antonio Vivaldi – all in their own inimitable, high-octane style. Positively volcanic!

Programme includes pieces by: Vivaldi, Telemann, Handel, Biber, Byrd, Mielczewski and Hungarian folk melodies.
