La Nuova Musica
La Nuova Musica provides the highest standard performances of Baroque music for the benefit of as wide an audience as possible
La Nuova Musica is a Baroque ensemble based in London, whose chief desire is to bring the highest standard of musical performance of 17th and 18th century repertoire for the benefit of as wide an audience as possible.
Far from being dead and remote, the music and texts of the Baroque help us in the 21st century to ponder the concerns of human nature in an emotionally truthful way. Coming to us from an age before technical means of communication and enhancement of sound were available, the music’s impact is colourful, sophisticated and visceral.
The energy that that the Baroque demands of its performers, is La Nuova Musica’s most potent tool in striving to move audiences. Their repertoire reflects the chief forms of the period - opera and choral. La Nuova Musica’s work covers concerts, performance of opera, (either fully or semi-staged), and recording projects in collaboration with the world’s foremost ‘period performance practice’ recording company - harmonia mundi USA.
There is a wealth of stunning and yet unheard repertoire to be explored and outstanding young talent to be introduced to audiences in the UK and abroad. We could not continue our work without the generous support of private donors and friends. Join us on this journey as a Friend and help us fulfill our potential to become one of the world’s leading period ensembles. Membership Options:
