Product Description

Product Description

"Yesterday, to judge from the tumultuous ovation that followed his dazzling performance of Chopin's opus 28 Preludes, free of both perfume and rhetoric, then history repeated itself. Certainly, I believe that a performance of these 24 miracles of miniaturism which has more clarity, transparency and economy than Williams's interpretation is just about unthinkable." The Glasgow Herald

About the Artist

One of the most outstanding pianists of his generation, Llŷr brings an extraordinary musical intelligence to all his work, as soloist, accompanist and chamber musician. Last summer he made his Proms debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jiri Belohlavek, opened the Queen's Hall series at the Edinburgh Festival and appeared with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields at the Barbican's Mostly Mozart Festival. This year he returns to the Edinburgh International Festival for the fourth time appearing with the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra conducted by Osmo Vanska.

Format:Audio CD
A wonderful performance of great piano music by a superlative pianist who is probably better known outside his own country than in Wales.

A highly rewarding display of consummate pianism from this young Welshman. A worthy debut in what one hopes will be a long and fruitful recording career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkness and Light 13 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD after hearing the performance of the Nocturne Op.48 Nr.1 some time ago. The slow tempo and exquisitely "together" delivery of the opening chords set a a mood of dark introspection sustained throughout the piece. The memory of this performance stayed with me such that others seemed to lack something. Playing it again in the "cold light of day" after purchasing the CD I found that this is indeed a very powerful performance, well recorded with a slightly dark timbre in the piano sound that perfectly matches the mood of the interpretation.
The Preludes are the main item on the disc. These performances are also excellent, emphasising the melancholy side of the set, but bright and energetic when necessary, in no way side stepping the technical challenges. The Preludes are such iconic pieces in the central repertoire that it would be difficult to recommend a single performance but this one is up there with the best. For me the Nocturne alone is worth the price of the CD.

I am thrilled with this CD. I am a great fan of Llyr Williams, and have been lucky enough to attend many of his recitals.
A wonderful recording.
