Another opportunity to hear the Artistic Director’s introduction to the season curation, this time as a pre-concert talk at at the National Library.

Born in Oswestry, Henry Walford Davies (1869-1941) was one of the most famous British musicians of his generation as an organist, composer and broadcaster. He was invited by Gwendoline and Margaret Davies to become the first Artistic Director of the Gregynog Festival in 1933, and succeeded Edward Elgar as Master of the King’s Musick in 1934.

Artistic Director Dr Rhian Davies’s lecture considers Walford Davies’s ambition ‘to further the expression of Welsh nationality in music’ and his visionary initiatives that were funded thanks to the ‘boundless generosity’ of Gwendoline and Margaret Davies.
