About this music

There are two rhapsodic movements in which the full gamut of harp timbres is effectively employed.


Sonata for Harp was commissioned by Coleg Harlech, in association with the Welsh Arts Council. It was first performed by Osian Ellis at Coleg Harlech on 20 April 1974.

The Sonata was revised by the composer in 1992, and the first performance of the revised version was given by Ieuan Jones at the Newbury Festival on 9 May 1993, followed by the Welsh premiere of the final version at the Machynlleth Festival on 26 August 1994.
