Lunchtime Concert: Gwenllian Llyr: Music for Harp

Friday 10 March 2023

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Known for her ability to create “an exceptionally still moment” (UKHA Magazine), City Music Foundation Artist Gwenllian Llŷr will perform some of the pieces from her highly anticipated second CD, ‘Soliloquies’. She pairs well-known composers with newer voices, including a new commission from Mared Emlyn inspired by the legend ‘Melangell’ as well as her own contemporary take on the well known hymn, Calon Lan.


Llyr – Ffantasi ar Calon Lan 
Scriabin, arr. G. Llŷr – Prelude and Nocturne for the left hand 
Vaughan Williams, arr. K. Thomas – Fantasy on Greensleeves 
Bartok, arr. P. Jardanyi – An Evening in the Village 
Emlyn – Melangell, Canghennau Clwm, Llannerch
Debussy – Clair de Lune 
Haldon Evans – Soliloquies – Dros y Mynydd (Over the Mountain), Suo Gân (Lullaby), O’r Banna (From the Beacons)


Welsh harpist Gwenllian Llyr is gaining international recognition for her charismatic and engaging performances. Gwenllian was twice a prize-winner at the USA International Harp Competition in Bloomington where she was highly praised for her musicianship and her ability to connect with audiences.

She has also won many prizes more locally, including the Len Lickorish Memorial Prize for a String Player of Promise at the Royal Over-Seas League AMC 2018, as well as becoming an Artist with City Music Foundation in 2017.
