  • Iwan Llewelyn-Jones Piano Recital

    Iwan Llewelyn-Jones Piano Recital

    Ucheldre Centre, Holyhead

    Sat 6th Apr 2019


    Iwan at Ucheldre 2018-19

    Nocturnes and Waltzes – Frédéric Chopin and Friends

    The third of four piano recitals for the 2018 - 19 series.

    Iwan Llewelyn-Jones explores the captivating piano music of Frédéric Chopin, and specifically the Nocturnes and Waltzes, timeless masterpieces brimming with beguiling charm and sparkling wit.

    Each recital will highlight the influences brought to bear on Chopin by his predecessors with works by Bach, Mozart, and the composer credited with giving birth to the Nocturne, John Field.

    Conversely, the ways in which Chopin’s ground-breaking pianistic style shaped the music of future generations will be reflected in performances of piano works from across the globe: Fauré, Ravel and Debussy (France), Schumann (Germany), Grieg (Norway), Liszt (Hungary), Paderewski (Poland) and Rachmaninov (Russia), together with Britten (Great Britain), Liebermann (USA) and Sculthorpe (Australia).

    Join Iwan on this musical odyssey as he shares his unique insights into Chopin’s world.

    Exhibition : MONDAY ART GROUP SHOW / SIOE GRWP CELF DDYDD LLUN

    Canolfan Ucheldre Centre

    Wed 30th Jan 2019 - Sun 10th Mar 2019

    The MAG was

    established in 2007, evolving from the then WEA group, for local aspiring

    artists to meet under the guidance of our tutor – artist Sue Griffiths.

    We explore techniques, study the works of renowned painters and sculptors with the aim of developing our own personal styles.

    Early on MAG was affiliated to the AAAC ( Association of Anglesey art clubs) which allowed members to enter the biennial art competition at Oriel Mon. Many of our members, past and present, have successfully exhibited at this competition and won major prizes.

    Our group now has 18 members, all living on Anglesey, who meet on a weekly basis. This will be the first MAG solo show.

    Sefydlwyd y grŵp yn 2007, gan esblygu o'r grŵp WEA fel yr oedd ar y pryd, er mwyn i artistiaid lleol gyfarfod o dan arweiniad ein tiwtor – yr arlunydd Sue Griffiths.

    Byddwn yn archwilio technegau, yn astudio gwaith paentwyr a cherflunwyr enwog gyda'r nod o ddatblygu ein dulliau personol ein hunain.

    Yn gynnar, roedd y Grwp yn gysylltiedig â'r AAAC (Cymdeithas clybiau celf Ynys Môn) a oedd yn caniatáu i’n haelodau ymgymryd yn y gystadleuaeth gelf bob dwy flynedd yn Oriel Mon. Mae llawer o’n haelodau dros y blynyddoedd wedi arddangos yn llwyddiannus yn y gystadleuaeth hon ac wedi ennill prif wobrau.

    Erbyn hyn, mae gan ein grŵp 18 o aelodau yn cyfarfod yn wythnosol a phob un ohonom yn byw ar Ynys Môn. Dyma fydd sioe gyntaf Grwp Celf ddydd Llun.

    Exhibition runs until Sunday 10 March

    Arddangosfa yn rhedig tan dydd Sul 10 Mawrth

    Admission Free/Mynediad am ddim
