Eclectic range of classics on tour
THE Asaph Ensemble visit North Wales for the second time when they bring their programme of Eclectic Classics to the region during the last week of May.
The group, based in London, has given concerts around South East England, Turkey and in Normandy, France.
The ensemble consists of Soprano, String Quintet, Organ, Oboe and Trumpet under the direction of David Hooke.
The range in its instrumental line-up gives scope for great variety in the programme.
As the title suggests, the programme will include an eclectic mix of classics, from Baroque to more contemporary, from the well-known to the obscure.
Works will include the Prelude to Charpentier’s Te Deum, Handel’s Let the Bright Seraphim, a movement from Marcello’s Oboe Concerto, Gabriel’s Oboe from the Film The Mission as well as Vivaldi’s Cum Dederit which was used in the Bond film Spectre.
The ensemble’s faith brings a dimension which means something more than just the music.
