Wales International
Piano Festival

1 – 4 May 2020

About the Festival

Organised by Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias and under the artistic leadership of international pianist Iwan Llewelyn-Jones, the 2020 Wales International Piano Festival will explore three key areas, namely performance, competition and education.

The Festival will pay homage to Ludwig van Beethoven and his considerable pianistic legacy as we celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth. Other festival themes include the music of the 1920s and the promotion of new music from Wales. 

We are delighted to welcome Festival Patron and renowned Beethoven interpreter John Lill CBE to give a recital to open the Festival.

Honorary Patron: John Lill CBE
Honorary President: John Metcalf MBE
