03.04.13 Nonclassical @ The Macbeth ft. Thomas Gould + Music off Canvas

For April's Nonclassical we're back at Hoxton's favourite 'haggard old party pub' for a night in association with our good friends Platform33. Following the sonic mayhem of our recent Pioneers of Electronic Music series, it'll be nice to return to more acoustic territory with a headline performance from the celebrated violinist Thomas Gould, described by The Sunday Times as a 'soloist of rare refinement'. A very rare chance to see this acclaimed performer in such intimate surroundings, and he's put together the following killer programme:

Ewan Campbell - Everything, all at once (premiere)
Benjamin Ellin - Three States
Graham Williams - Mr. Punch (premiere)
John Hawkins - BoBop
Aziza Sadikova - La Baroque Nico Muhly - A Long Line Mark Bowden - Lines written a few miles below

Also performing on 3rd April is Music Off Canvas, a new group led by Hannah Grayson (flute) and Vanessa Howells (oboe) that collaborates with diverse arts specialists and includes LIVE PAINTING. They've already been sought out by venues such as the Southbank Centre and the Saatchi Gallery and this will be seriously good. More details coming soon!

Wednesday 3rd April, 8pm The Macbeth, 70 Hoxton Street N1 6LP (directions) £5 advance / £6 on the door
