Welsh harpist Gwenllian Llyr continues our 2018-19 Lunchtime Recital Series at St Bartholomew the Less.

Her programme will include works by Debussy, Scriabin, and Liszt, as well as music by the French harpist/composer Henriette Renié and by Welsh composers Grace Williams, Haldon Evans, and William Matthias.

Gwenllian joined the CMF Artist Programme in 2017.


Welsh harpist Gwenllian Llyr is quickly gaining international recognition for her charismatic and engaging performances. In July 2013, Gwenllian was a prize-winner at the USA International Harp Competition in Bloomington, where she was highly praised for her musicianship. She has also won many prizes more locally, including the Blue Ribbon at the 2012 National Eisteddfod of Wales, and First Prize at the 2010 London Camac Harp Competition. She became a CMF Artist in 2017. Gwenllian graduated with First class honours from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and has a Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School in New York, where she was also awarded the William Schuman prize for outstanding achievement and leadership in music. She was later the first to complete an Advanced Diploma in Harp at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Her career has taken her across the globe with performances in prestigious venues such as St. David’s Hall, Buckingham Palace, Carnegie Hall, and the Royal Albert Hall, and alongside renowned artists such as jazz legend Al Jarreau, pianist Imogen Cooper, and international opera singer Bryn Terfel.

Gwenllian is enjoying a busy and varied freelance career, which also extends to performing for the charity Live Music Now and teaching at King’s College, London and the Latymer Music Centre in North London.
