Presented by Chamber Music New Zealand
The only Baroque music group to have been compared to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock and Cirque du Soleil, Red Priest brings their own inimitable, high-octane style to the classics of the Baroque.
Red Priest have redefined the art of period performance, creating a virtual orchestra through their creative arrangements, swashbuckling virtuosity, heartfelt emotion, and captivating stagecraft.
These concerts relive the extraordinary virtuosity of the early Baroque masters like Bach and Biber, explore melodies from a 1730 Slovakian fiddler’s tune-book, revel in the gypsy-influenced music of Telemann, and reimagine music by Handel and the original ‘red priest’, Antonio Vivaldi – all with Red Priest’s trademark energy and irreverent humour.
