Llŷr Williams Schubert Recital Series

We are delighted to announce that Llŷr Williams will present another series of recitals at the Royal Welsh College, starting this autumn. The series of five concerts will include most of Franz Schubert’s important piano works, as well as several fascinating and virtuosic transcriptions of Schubert’s songs by Franz Liszt.

“Having reached the end of my Beethoven project at the Dora Stoutzker Hall, I was delighted when the college suggested I should continue my association there with a further series of recitals. I consider the Beethoven concerts to be one of the highlights of my past few years – the acoustics in the hall are among the best in the country and I feel that I’ve been able to take the very enthusiastic audience on a special journey.

The piano music of Schubert seems a very natural place to go after Beethoven, not only does it start chronologically roughly where Beethoven left off but there is also a similar mixture of large-scale sonatas and shorter works from which one can build varied programmes. I also hope to include some less frequently-played rarities and some transcriptions of Schubert Lieder during the 5-concert series.”
