Llyr starts the new 13/14 season by returning to the Festival International Piano Aux Jacobins in Toulouse this September before commencing a UK recital tour (including dates in Liverpool and Norwich) and starting a residency at Glasgow Royal Concert Halls.
Along with the Elias Quartet, Williams will be immersing himself in Beethoven over the next three seasons, with the first installment taking place in September 2013. He and the Elias Quartet will explore the sonatas and string quartets, in an imaginative series of talks and concerts, exploring Beethoven’s early works right through to the late ones. This September’s installment focuses on the 1800s, when Beethoven was in his 30s, and Williams and the Elias Quartet will be joined by bass-baritone Stephan Loges. Further details can be found here.
