Wales’s leading chamber music ensemble, Ensemble Cymru, will mark its 15 year anniversary with a very special and extended concert at Venue Cymru. Bringing together world-class musicians with a passion for sharing rare chamber music from Wales and the world.
Ensemble Cymru will perform works by two living Welsh composers: a brand new commission from Gareth Glyn, as well as Emerging (lightly) by Aberdyfi-based Rhian Samuel. From the 20th century is the rarely-performed gem, Nonet, by England’s great Arnold Bax, alongside Debussy’s Dances for Harp and String Quintet, conceived as a harp ‘showcase’. Going right back to 1738, Handel’s remarkable Harp Concerto Op. 4, No. 6 draws on nearly all our varied instrumental forces for this exciting season.
