Piers Adams recorders     Adam Summerhayes violin
Angela East cello             David Wright harpsichord
 
Music by Vivaldi, Telemann, Handel, Biber, Byrd, Mielczewski and Hungarian folk melodies 
 
The world-famous baroque quartet led by ‘superhuman’ recorder player Piers Adams and the devilish fiddler, Adam Summerhayes, transform into a wild ‘baroque gypsy’ band. They re-live the extraordinary virtuosity of early Bohemian Baroque masters, explore melodies from a 1730 Slovakian fiddler’s tune-book, revel in the gypsy-influenced music of Telemann, and re-imagine music by Handel and the original Red Priest, Antonio Vivaldi – all in their own inimitable, high-octane style. Positively volcanic!
