Sioned and Rosalind in Rehearsal
About the Programme:
Ensemble Cymru’s first Ambassador for New Music will be the Bangor clarinettist Sioned Roberts. By means of a series of free 20-30 minute performances (October ’11 – April ’12) Sioned will be inviting audiences to join her on a voyage of discovery in 20th and 21st century music for solo clarinet, dance and movement. A warm welcome to everyone to a display of extreme clarinet virtuosity!
Christopher Painter’s Furnace of Colours was premièred by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in a Radio 3 broadcast in early 2011. Hanes Taliesin or Taliesin’s Tale is a brand new series of pieces for solo clarinet specially commissioned for this project with support from the Arts Council of Wales.
