A RARE opportunity to enjoy to enjoy a portion of the vast oeuvre of Franz Schubert will delight classical music afficionados in Colwyn Bay.

Ensemble Cymru will a live performance of Schubert’s Octet for wind and strings at Theatr Colwyn on Wednesday, November 6 at 7.30pm.

Comprising six distinctive movements, the work showcases a composer with a unique flair for captivating melodies and harmonies.

To complement this work, Ensemble Cymru has commissioned a tribute to Schubert from Welsh composer, John Metcalf.

With its dreamy beauty, drawing inspiration from the beautiful Welsh folk melody, Bugeilio’r Gwenith Gwyn, Metcalf creates a fitting contemporary testament to Schubert’s lyrical brilliance.
