An internationally renowned Welsh pianist is set to perform a summer concert at Gregynog Hall, near Newtown to raise funds for CPRW, the Welsh countryside charity that protects and cares for the environment.

Llŷr Williams performs with orchestras around the world, including the BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC National Orchestra of Wales and with BBC Proms in London.

The summer concert will be held at 7.30pm on Saturday, June 8.

Classical concert pianist Llŷr said: “As CPRW’s Ambassador, I’m honoured to be performing to help raise funds for the Charity. I’m passionate about protecting and conserving the beautiful landscapes of Wales.


"Growing up in North Wales, with the outdoors on my doorstep, I am keen to ensure the countryside will be looked after for the next generation.

"Gregynog Music Room is a beautiful setting; I am looking forward to playing there soon.”

Llŷr will perform Beethoven’s Sonata op.31 no.2 ‘The Tempest’ at the beginning of the concert and Beethoven’s Sonata op.53 ‘Waldstein’ to close. He will also be joined by Ezo Sarici, violinist, who will perform a solo piece by contemporary composer Huw Watkins.
