On this tour the choir is joined by two fine prize-winning musicians, harpist Dylan Cernyw and tenor John Eifion. Cernyw performed two works, one by ‘Glinka’ and the other ‘Watching the White Wheat’. After the choir, the subtle texture of the harp provided a nice mood change and Cernyw performed with virtuoso skill in the later work.
It’s a great pleasure for me to introduce Dylan Cernyw’s third CD with Sain recordings. Dylan has been an accompanist and a member of Ysgol Glanaethwy Choir for a number of years, and have been fortunate to have his services during a very busy and exciting time at Ysgol Glanaethwy. During the number of concerts that we have given in the past few months, we have had the pleasure in hearing some of the tracks from his album that you are about to hear. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. Dylan manages to put his own stamp on the tracks, so sit back, put your feet up and pour yourself a large glass of wine, and let Dylan do the rest. Enjoy!
Many thanks for being a part of our concert last Saturday. I was a treat, you were superb, it was lovely to meet you and listen to your music you could hear a pin drop in the hall during your performance. I can’t wait to play your CD.
We’d like to thank you for making our special day so wonderful.
I’ve never heard a harp played with such skill. Once again thank you.
Thank you very much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. It was a fantastic day and everyone we spoke to really enjoyed listening to your music. Fortunately the wet weather didn’t dampen our spirits and your performance created the right ambience at the Church and at Mellington. Many thanks again
As a guest soloist on Caernarfon Male Choir’s recent tour to Ontario, Dylan’s accomplishment captivated the audience. His ability to give a modern flair to traditional airs was thrilling. On his recording you can also feel the zest in his playing.
Diolch o galon am noswaith fythgofiadwy yn y Buckley nos Iau diwethaf. Yr oedd aelodau y Gymdeithas wedi gwirioni hefo’r performiad. Cymru ar ei orau, yr oeddwn yn falch iawn o fod yn Gymraes. Gobeithio y cawn eich clywed eto cyn bo hir.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for making our wedding so special. I was sorry I didn’t get the chance to thank you in person. Your harp playing was beautiful and you made my favourite piece of music just perfect (Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini). Everyone was commenting on how lovely the harp music was. Thanks again.
Thank you so much, the music was absolutely beautiful. I loved being able to hear you playing while we were being whisked around for the photos.
Diolch yn fawr iawn!!
By chance we saw you at Bodnant Garden on the 27th May…loved your music on the day and as soon as we went home went online to purchase your latest CD…..can’t get Kentucky Rag out of my mind! Best Wishes.
