Last season we experienced two very special piano recitals of the very highest quality: the first was performed by the distinguished Peter Donohoe and the
second by our very own Galin Ganchev. In previous years we have seen amazing performances by Nikolai Demidenko, Freddy Kempf and Joanna Macgregor
to name a few. This season promises to maintain the stunning quality of the piano recitals that we are fortunate enough to experience at Shrewsbury.

The Welsh Pianist Llyr Williams brings a profound musical intelligence to his work as a soloist and accompanist. He has performed with orchestras around the
world, including the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, London Mozart Players, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London
Symphony Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra, Sinfonia Cymru, I Pomeriggi Musicali and the Mozarteum Orchestra in Salzburg.

He also appears regularly at the BBC Proms in London and has given many remarkable performances at the Edinburgh Festival, including an astonishing
performance of Charles Ives’ Concord Sonata in 2010.

Llyr will be performing a proposed programme that includes; MOZART: Fantasie in C minor K475, BEETHOVEN: Piano Sonata Op.90, SCHUBERT:
Wanderer Fantasie, SCHUMANN: Fantasiestücke, Op12, CHOPIN: Polonaise-Fantasie Op 61 and also Mazurkas by Szymanowski.

Tickets for this intimate recital are priced at just £12 each and are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool

No, but you get a free tin of spam on entry.

I wish there was a system like there is on Facebook with likes and dislikes on piano street. I want acknowledge the humor there but I don't have a full comment on it.

You are unlikely to find out as people that post this kind of stuff, rarely come back after placing their advert, which is the only purpose of their visit.

I heard his performance of Liszt's transcriptions from Wagner's Tannahau:ser this evening on BBC R3, and thought they were great - lovely to see these works brought back to life, even though their immediate necessity has disappeared in our age of all-music-instantly-on-tap...
