2.00pm, BBC Hoddinott Hall, Wales Millennium Centre
Conductor: Jac van Steen
Piano: Clare Hammond
What better way to kick off our 2022 Festival than with Wales’ foremost symphony orchestra perform a programme of entirely Welsh works including three world premieres?
Grace Williams blazed a trail which later generations of Welsh composers have followed. We’re immensely proud to present a concert of works by Welsh Composers, spanning the decades and bringing us right up to date with world premieres from Sarah Lianne Lewis, David John Roche and Festival Director John Metcalf.
David John Roche
Waves of Love (World Premiere)
John Metcalf, arr. David John Roche
Sarah Lianne Lewis
Piano Concertante, with Clare Hammond (Piano)
The concert will be preceded by a pre-performance talk – “In discussion with Sarah Lianne Lewis and David John Roche”, hosted by Rian Evans at 13.15 in the Preseli Room, WMC.
