Bourgie Hall presents

Llyr Williams

Following two remarkable appearances at Bourgie Hall, this Welsh virtuoso returns with a program presenting great works of the piano literature inspired by the musical traditions of various European nations.

Welsh pianist Llŷr Williams is widely admired for his profound musical intelligence, and for the expressive and communicative nature of his interpretations. He has performed with all the major UK orchestras under conductors including Michael Tilson Thomas, Jiří Bělohlávek, Carlo Rizzi, Vasily Petrenko, Jaime Martín, Osmo Vanska , Joseph Swensen, Grant Llewellyn and Jac Van Steen, and he has a particularly longstanding relationship with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, with whom he has in recent seasons performed concertos ranging from Mozart and Beethoven to Bartók and Mathias.

As a recitalist, Llŷr Williams regularly performs at venues and festivals including Wigmore Hall, Perth Concert Hall, the St David’s and Dora Stoutzker Halls in Cardiff, and the Edinburgh and East Neuk Festivals. His long association with the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama has included acclaimed multi-recital cycles of Beethoven, Schubert,and Chopin. The 2023-24 season sees him returning to Wigmore Hall, as well as the start of a six-recital Haydn-Mozart-Schumann series at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Further afield, the season includes return invitations to the Festival Cultural de Mayo in Guadalajara for a complete Beethoven Sonata cycle, the Capital Region Classical series in Schenectady, USA and Salle Bourgie in Montreal, and his debut at the ‘Le Piano Symphonique’ festival in Lucerne.
