Matinee classical music recitals presented across this year. A chance to meet and enjoy music with lunch or a drink in The Riverfront Cafe before or after the performance. 

Wednesday 1 March, 1pm
Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf (arranged for wind quintet and narrator), Janáček Mladi and Narrator Helen Woods.

On St David’s Day join leading Welsh chamber orchestra Sinfonia Cymru as they explore music that celebrates youth. 

Prokofiev’s ever-popular Peter and the Wolf is a classic tale of youthful bravery and daring, brought to life in this arrangement by wind quintet with narrator Helen Woods.

Written in Janáček’s 70th year, Mladi, meaning ‘youth’, is both joyful and wistful, as the composer recalls his early years using melodies written to echo the patterns of speech.
