A feast of treats, this concert combines music by giants of contemporary music, including Steve Reich and Peteris Vasks, with incredible new talent emerging from Wales today.

Vale of Glamorgan Festival presents one of the world’s first performances of Steve Reich’s Music for Ensemble and Orchestra, and the world premiere of a new arrangement of John Metcalf’s Polly Garter Aria (from his critically acclaimed opera Under Milk Wood).

The performance promises moments of quiet meditation, with Lonely Angel by Peteris Vasks reflecting the vision of an angel gazing down on the world, concerned and hopeful at the same time; and plenty of fun, with Graham Fitkin’s celebratory work Metal – for orchestra and untuned scaffolding – ending the night with a bang.
