“For sheer technical wizardry, charismatic showmanship and expressive devilment, Red Priest is in an exhilarating class of its own.”   BBC Music Magazine

Red Priest has been at the cutting edge of baroque music performance for over 25 years.  Led by recorder virtuoso Piers Adams  -  and named after the original ‘red priest’ Antonio Vivaldi  -  the quartet of recorder, violin, cello and harpsichord has developed a truly unique style of high-energy performance and remarkable arrangements, delighting audiences across the globe.  We are looking forward to the ensemble’s return to Naunton after its first appearance in 2000.

The programme, entitled “A Baroque Extravaganza”, will feature works by J.S. Bach, Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi.

 

FRIDAY 14 JUNE, 7:00 PM          BENJAMIN GROSVENOR (SOLO PIANO)

“Grosvenor is the real deal.”     The Financial Times, 5-star review, BBC Proms solo recital July 2023

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally recognised for his sonorous lyricism and understated brilliance at the keyboard.  His virtuosic interpretations are underpinned by a unique balance of technical mastery and intense musicality.  He is regarded as one of the most important pianists to emerge in several decades, with Gramophone recently acknowledging him as one of the top 50 pianists ever on record.

The programme will include Brahms’ Intermezzi, op. 117, Liszt’s B minor Sonata and Chopin’s Sonata no. 3.

 

FRIDAY 5 JULY, 7:00 PM        THE CARICE SINGERS  (CHORAL ENSEMBLE)

Superb performances and imaginative programming.”   Oxford Lieder Festival

The Carice Singers is emerging as one of the most distinctive vocal ensembles in the UK, defined by its unique sound and imaginative choice of repertoire.  Founded in 2011 and directed by George Parris, the ensemble began life focusing on Elgar’s part-songs, naming itself after the composer’s daughter and only child. 

The programme is called “Sacred and Profane” and weaves together works by Arvo Prt, J.S. Bach, Benjamin Britten and William Byrd.

 

 

FRIDAY 27 SEPTEMBER, 7:00 PM          QUATUOR AGATE  (STRING QUARTET)

“The playing was quite magical with flawless intonation, rich tone [and] perfect bow control….”          Lammermuir Festival review, September 2022

Formed in 2016, Quatuor Agate is based in Paris.  Highlights of the last season included debut recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Alte Oper Frankfurt as well as concerts at several prestigious European festivals.  The Quartet will return to the Wigmore Hall in 2024.

The concert will open with quartets by Boccherini and Ravel;  the second half features Dvořk’s Quartet no. 13, Op. 106.


Hope you will join us for more memorable music-making!
