Concert: Red Priest perform Baroque carnival

Details

It's Sunday evening, so why not take a break from work worries for a few hours and enjoy some fun chamber music in the serene surroundings of King's Place?

The inimitable Red Priest will perform a wild carnival ride of Baroque music for recorder, violin, cello and harpsichord. The group will present some of its old favourites by Vivaldi (Concerto in A minor) and Bach (Toccata and Fugue, Brandenburg Concerto No. 3) alongside dramatic new transcriptions of music by Handel – including selections from the Messiah, Zadok the Priest, Rinaldo and Solomon – and French composers Royer and Forqueray.

Red Priest is: Piers Adams, recorder; Julia Bishop, violin; Angela East, cello; David Wright, harpsichord.

Online saver tickets for £9.50 are bookable online at: http://www.kingsplace.co.uk/whats-on-book-tickets/music/red-priest-baroque-carnival

The concert starts at 6.30. Since it is a "school night" we will meet for a drink in the Rotunda bar before the concert. Who knows, there may even be a hint of sunshine by then glinting off the Regent's canal...?

I will email my mobile before the event to those who RSVP.
