PIRATES OF THE BAROQUE

RED PRIEST

Album number four from the brigands of baroque music is a colourful chest of stolen musical jewels, featuring Vivaldi’s famous ‘Tempesta di Mare” concerto, a theatrically piratical suite of pieces by Couperin, the famous Albinoni Adagio and much more!

"An amazing disc... an extraordinary performance from one of the most exhilarating groups I’ve encountered in many a long year."  DAVID MELLOR on CLASSIC FM - THE NEW CD SHOW 

"Anyone yet to encounter Red Priest should be alerted to their performances coming with a health warning. Purists might blanch at what they do with music of the Baroque, but the rest of us can revel in their exuberance, irreverence and dazzling virtuosity." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH Classical CD of the Week **** Read whole review

"I love this swashbuckling CD... Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum to RedPriest!"  CLASSIC FM MAGAZINE Presenter's Choice

"Ferociously enjoyable.... Superb musicians lie behind their affectionate stylistic tricks ... I loved it all." THE TIMES Read whole review

"Spectacular virtuosity and mischievous wit... Red Priest go outrageously over the top but return from the other side with previously unimagined delights.... a splendidly irreverent antidote to music under a glass case." BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE

"Unique and exhilarating... These people are really hot because, at their root, they are outstanding, serious musicians." THE MAIL ON SUNDAY  Read whole review

"Staggeringly virtuosic, consummately musical and outrageously exuberant.." THE GLASGOW HERALD Read whole review

"Red Priest have developed a unique approach to delivering the pearls and jewels of the music of that era... I swear I could hear seagulls and feel the waves vibrate against the shore.... they are a tour de force.   Ahoy, me hearties, this is pirate treasure indeed!" MUSICAL OPINION 

"A cheeky, jaw-dropping, sensitive and virtuosic pan-stylistic meta-display...  For all the dynamics variations and theatrical devices, the seismic shifts of the articulation, ricocheting and vitalising, these are at heart four sensitive, technically highly accomplished musicians. They couldn’t play with such pinpoint verve if they weren’t.... Catch them in concert and on disc too; there’s no one quite like them "  MUSIC WEB
