Swansea International Festival

Now firmly established as a leading international pianist, Llŷr Williams performs Beethoven, a composer for whom he has established a particular affinity. The Fourth Piano Concerto is remarkable for its combination of outer tenderness and underlying intensity, continually shifting in mood from melancholy to heroic, anguished to whimsical. Beethoven’s influence is all too evident in Brahma’s last and greatest symphony, a work of tremendous power and passion, not to mention immense beauty.
