WASHINGTON: On Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 8pm, English Baroque sensation Red Priest returns to the stage at Dumbarton Concerts with a program works by Johann Sebastian Bach including epic transcriptions of the Brandenburg No. 3 and the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, plus a host of dazzling allegros and some of the most sublime adagios ever composed.
Red Priest is one of the major success stories on the international Early Music scene today. Named after the flame-haired priest, Antonio Vivaldi, this extraordinary English ensemble has re-defined the art of baroque music performance, combining the fruits of extensive research with swashbuckling virtuosity, creative re-composition, heart-on-sleeve emotion and compelling stagecraft. The group performs largely from memory, allowing an operatic level of freedom and interaction, and its highly imaginative programs are drawn from myriad baroque sources to create a kaleidoscopic range of moods and colors.
