Red Priest: Truly Madly Baroque, at Christ Church, Los Altos

Sunday, September 29, 2019, 7:00 pm

Experience this “visionary and heretical” Baroque quartet from England in their only 2019 West Coast performance as they open the Living Harmony Concert Series 2019-2020 season. Red Priest is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the Cirque du Soleil. This extraordinary acoustic foursome has redefined the art of period performance, creating a virtual orchestra through their creative arrangements, performing from memory with swashbuckling virtuosity, heart-on-sleeve emotion and compelling stagecraft. With a repertoire that ranges from obscure 17th century sonatas to the most famous works of Bach and Vivaldi, Red Priest has been described by critics as ‘outrageous yet compulsive’, ‘wholly irreverent and highly enlightened’, ‘completely wild and deeply imaginative’, with a ‘red-hot wicked sense of humour’ and a ‘break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music’.
