This stunning new recording focusses on the extraordinary, trailblazing music of the Seicento – the 17th Century.  Frequently overlooked nowadays in favour of the baroque ‘household names’ who followed, the musicians of the Seicento were truly innovative – surprising, expressive, quirky and often demonically virtuosic.   Piers Adams has teamed up with Red Priest cohort David Wright to explore the best of this forgotten musical genre, giving new voice to the Wild Men of the Seicento!

"An action-packed recital... they storm their way through thickets of keyboard batteries, recorder roulades and all manner of technical devilry with superhuman virtuosity, a laughing recklessness and style you can't buy"  
GRAMOPHONE June 2016

The virtuosity is simply astonishing – almost implausible… One might be tempted to smile at the cheekiness of the technical tricks, if it were not for the disconcerting profundity and insight that the music seems to point towards.“

“Make no mistake, for all the fun and good humour in these terrific performances there is musicianship of a high order… this is a stunning disc."
