Notes & Reviews:

Piers Adams is widely regarded as one of the greatest recorder players of our time. He has worked tirelessly to develop the recorder's reputation as a serious solo instrument, in particular through his research into forgotten corners of the instrument's repertoire and his numerous arrangements and transcriptions from a wide range of genres. In 1997 Piers founded his now world-renowned baroque quartet Red Priest, with whom he has toured the globe several times, performing over 1,000 concerts on four continents in some of the most prestigious music festivals. The group has appeared frequently on TV and radio - including hour-long televised features on LWT's The South Bank Show (UK) - and recorded several acclaimed discs for Red Priest Recordings.
