Welsh pianist Llyr Williams is a regular performer at London’s Wigmore Hall and recently made his debuts at The Gilmore International Keyboard Festival and the Ravinia Festival. On the cusp of a major international career, he has received rapturous acclaim from critics for his performances and recordings.
