Llyr Williams piano

Two seasons ago, Llyr Williams embarked on a monumental survey of Beethoven's complete piano works at Wigmore Hall.
His latest recital encompasses the vivid stylistic contrasts and fruitful thematic ideas of the three Op. 10 piano sonatas and the elemental Diabelli Variations, remarkable even by Beethoven's standards for their invention and blend of disciplined craft and individual spontaneity.
