“The campfire crackles menacingly, covering the sound of the curiously Hobbit-like violinist winching his strings into tune (he has already broken three E-strings in the last hour, such is the frenzy of his bowing). A tall, lanky figure appears from the shadows wielding a sheaf of pipes, relishing the challenge of a musical duel with his arch-rival. From a dodgy-looking caravan on the edge of the clearing emerges a swarthy gypsy wearing suspiciously modern shades, hastily tucking in his billowing shirt, whilst in a neighbouring wagon the matriarch of the clan sets down her crystal ball and reaches – carefully, ominously – for her cello…”

So begins Red Priest’s journey into the enthralling world of the Gypsy musicians of the 17th and 18th centuries. This brand new CD from the world famous quartet explores traditional Eastern European music from the era alongside Gypsy-inspired works by Telemann, Biber, Byrd and others, and extraordinary re-workings of Vivaldi and Handel through the eyes of a modern-day Gypsy band.  A must-have for all Red Priest fans!
