Noxwode Baroque Summer Tour
Emerging instrumental ensemble, Noxwode, are taking their programme ‘Lies and Morals’ to three remote locations across the UK this summer, culminating in a video recording of the performance. 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.
