Our lunchtime concerts at the Riverfront, Newport are back! When we programme these concerts, rather than using established groups, the ensembles are put together from scratch, so they don’t come ready rehearsed. The players have to use the intensive rehearsal process to navigate their way through the stylistic and musical decisions as a collective – a valuable skill for young musicians to develop. For the audience, it means the concerts are completely fresh.
Cyngherddau Dros Ginio
Mae ein cyngherddau dros ginio yng Nglan yr Afon, Casnewydd yn ail ddechrau! Wrth raglenni'r cyngherddau, ni fyddwn yn defnyddio grwpiau sydd wedi'i sefydlu eisioes, bydd yr ensemble yn cael ei greu o'r newydd, heb unrhyw ymarfer o flaen llaw. Bydd y cerddorion yn defnyddio'r cyfnod ymarfer dwys, i liwio'r penderfyniadau a'rdehongliad cerddorol ar y cyd - sgil gwethfawr tu hwnt i helpu'r cerddorion ifanc i ddatblygu. I'r gynulleidfa, mae'n golygu cyngerdd newydd sbon.

Still only 23 Lucienne Ranaudin Vary already has an incredible career as a classical and jazz trumpeter. Described, quite rightly, as a 'trumpet sensation' she has won awards for her playing from a very early age. Conductors and other artists marvel at her talents and her exceptional musicality. The programme combines classical repertoire with jazz influenced music from the streets of France and New York. In the first half you will hear the small ensemble version of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and the sensational Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto. The orchestra opens the second half with Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin before we switch moods with pieces taken from her album with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Mademoiselle in New York, arranged by Bill Elliot.
'Don't miss this' is an overused cliché. But really, don't miss this - these performances are going to be very special.
