Red Priest present a fantastical new programme exploring the connections between music of great baroque masters and the wild folk musicians of Eastern Europe.

Featured is a sonata and concerto by Telemann, stunning early baroque virtuosity from Bohemian composers Biber and Mielczewski, and a suite of haunting melodies from the 1730 Uhrovska Collection. There is also a distinctly English take on music of the East from Elizabethan composers Byrd and Nicholson, and works by Handel and the Red Priest himself, Antonio Vivaldi, re-imagined with dazzling gypsy bravura!

Vecchi Venti is a Renaissance brass and wind ensemble who perform using historical instruments, including cornetti, sackbuts and dulcian. Since forming at the Royal College of Music in 2014, Vecchi Venti has given chamber music concerts at the V&A Museum, the RCM Museum of Instruments, St Stephen’s Church, Gloucester Road, and Regent’s Hall. The ensemble also performs regularly with the choir at Christ Church, Chelsea. It forms part of the massed inter-conservatoire renaissance brass ensemble formed in summer 2016, and several of the group’s members have studied and performed as scholars at the Dartington International Summer School.

Tonight’s programme explores the Venetian school of composers from the 16th and 17th Centuries, and traces paths of musical influence between teachers, students, colleagues and family. This snapshot of Renaissance and early Baroque Venice features madrigals, canzonas and motets from the repertoires of both famous and lesser-known composers of the time, following the development of compositional and instrumental virtuosity.
