Eclec­tic range of clas­sics on tour

Bangor Mail - - Your Guide -

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.

The En­sem­ble’s itin­er­ary is: Glod­daeth Church, Llan­dudno, Mon­day, May 27, 2-4pm, en­try £5; Cas­tle Square Church, Caernar­fon, Tues­day, May 28, 7.30pm, re­tir­ing collection; St Mary’s and All Saints Church, Conwy, Thurs­day, May 30, 7.30pm, re­tir­ing collection; United Church, Wa­ter Street, Rhyl, Fri­day, May 31, 7.30pm, re­tir­ing collection; Prestatyn Parish Church, Satur­day, June 1, 7pm, tick­ets £10.
