'Baroque is back'

bishop's castle town hall 5th April



 

Noxwode are excited to be returning to Bishop’s Castle on the 5th of April for a warming evening of early chamber music from across Europe. After 2 years of the pandemic, a time of very little live music, this concert will showcase different repertoire coming up for the ensemble this year for their tours across the UK and Europe, and give a snapshot of what’s to come to Bishop’s Castle throughout 2022. So, come along for music, beer, and chats! Directed by local baroque violinist Conor Gricmanis

'Lies and morals'

Tour of 17th century works throughout the UK

Noxwode are taking their programme ‘Lies and Morals’ to three remote locations across the UK this Summer, culminating in a video recording. The focus of this theme delves into the wild composition style of the stylus fantasticus. A lie cannot exist without good morals, and Noxwode have included works that represent naivety and a care-free nature, only to be faced with dark gravitas, complex resolutions, and open-ended questions through the weapon of rhetoric, and virtuosic compositional harmony. Inspired by Strozzi’s “Mentita”, this programme also includes a work commissioned for Noxwode on the theme of false love.
