Here we are with a new set of chamber concerts, wrapped into our beloved box of
little things in odd shapes.
This year we are going even further in combining unusual set of instruments with forgotten composers, but don’t worry there will always be a ‘celebrity composer’ popping out in each concert!
The program includes music both from the Baroque and Classical era, new music written for historical instruments, and some classics like Bach cantata Ich Habe Genug with baritone Philiph Wilcox.
We have a special guest from South America, guitarist Arturo Castro Nogueras, and a fundraising-oboe-fest for the stolen oboe of Istante Collective member Nicola Barbagli.
Award winning soprano Hilary Cronin will join Istante Collective for some Mozart’s Figaro and Così operatic arias as well as rediscovering Martin y Soler music which Mozart knew well and appreciated.
On the last weekend of the series, folk, improvisation and a little jazz will meet early music: Firstly, 17th century songs from the London theaters with the newly formed ensemble Nobody's Jig, and the big folk session with Istante Collective & friends.
We hope that our Little Things in Odd Shapes 2023 will keep you surprised and ready for Baroquestock 2023 (pencil it in - 27th April to 14th May!) for which will soon announce the program!
All the concerts are free entry (our little way of helping with the cost-of-living-crisis!) but you can still support our musician with a donation at the end of the concert or reserve a seat and buy a ticket at heathstreet.live - all the money will go to the musicians.
As per our tradition, homemade CAKES and FOCACCIA, wine and coffee will be available at all our concerts.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!
