Named after flame-haired composer Antonio Vivaldi, whose nickname was "The Red Priest," this London-based Baroque ensemble has been mixing music and mayhem for two decades. In this program, the foursome returns to The Met to ponder the connections— real and imagined—between gypsy musicians and the court composers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, including Biber, Telemann, Handel, and the group's namesake, Vivaldi. Who inspired whom? Red Priest attempts to answer using its trademark mix of virtuosity and flamboyance.
