After 15 years of music-making, our expanded ensemble enables an arresting programme for May 2018 that is truly diverse in both time and place. From Wales, we are absolutely thrilled to 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.

The Programme
Music for the flute, oboe, clarinet, harp, violins, viola, cello and double bass
Claude Debussy – Dances for Harp and String Quintet
Arnold Bax – Nonet
Gareth Glyn – To the Four Winds (new commission for Ensemble Cymru.)
Handel – Harp Concerto No. 6
Rhian Samuel – Emerging (lightly) for Solo Viola and Chamber Ensemble

Duration: 90 minutes (including 15 min interval)

***********************************************************

Ar ôl 15 mlynedd o greu cerddoriaeth, mae ein ensemble mwy o faint yn galluogi rhaglen drawiadol ar gyfer mis Mai 2018 sy’n wirioneddol amrywiol o ran amser a lleoliad. O Gymru, mae’n bleser mawr gennym berfformio gweithiau gan ddau gyfansoddwr byw: comisiwn newydd sbon gan Gareth Glyn, ac Emerging (lightly) gan Rhian Samuel o Aberdyfi.

O’r ugeinfed ganrif, cawn y perl na pherfformir mohoni’n aml, Nonet, gan y cyfansoddwr mawr o Loegr, Arnold Bax, ynghyd â Dawnsfeydd Debussy i’r Delyn a Phumawd Llinynnol, a gyfansoddwyd i ‘arddangos’ y delyn. O fynd yn ôl i 1738, mae concerto Handel Op. 4, Rhif 6 i’r Delyn yn tynnu ar ymron i’r cyfan o’r grymoedd offerynnol amrywiol sydd gennym y tymor cyffrous hwn.

Y Rhaglen
Cerddoriaeth i’r ffliwt, obo, clarinét, telyn, ffidlau, sielo a bas dwbl

Claude Debussy – Dawnsfeydd i’r Delyn a Phumawd Llinynol
Arnold Bax – Nonet
Gareth Glyn – I’r Pedwar Gwynt (Comisiwn newydd i Ensemble Cymru)

Rhian Samuel – Emerging (lightly) i Fiola Solo ac Ensemble Siambr
