Working with the composers of wales to bring living wales composers to life in a spectacular and organic fashion is what Ensemble Wales lives and breathes for, so this is a fantastic opportunity to see Wales’ outstanding musical repertoire in its full form and glory. The mission of the organisation is to raise the profile of Wales’ musical heritage and contemporary tunings through the infinite medium of music. Fans of history art and culture can rejoice in such a marvellous selection of shows.
The shows should meet their aim of bringing publicity and attention to Welsh Composers using Welsh musicians within Wales and making such a lousy noise as to be heard far away in the wider UK and internationally distinct realms. The programmes will be recorded, and the composers will be present at the concert which are featuring their music which meant that they will be able to interact with the musicians, conductors and they audience. Ensemble Cymru will also have the opportunity and challenge to expand their musical repertoire and listeners will have the rare opportunity to witness something truly different.
