Verified profile
One of Britain's leading young harpists in demand internationally.

Llywelyn completed his postgraduate studies in 2015 at the Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg where he was mentored by Stephen Fitzpatrick. He was also First Prize winner of the 'Savarez-Corelli Kammermusik Competition’. His Master’s studies were generously funded by the James Pantyfedwen Trust. Prior to his time in Salzburg, he studied the harp with Caryl Thomas at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he was the recipient of numerous awards including the Mansel Thomas Award, the Royal Welsh Fusiliers Award, and on two occasions, the Daniel Emlyn Davies Award. In 2013 he won the prestigious Lyon and Healy Award and the first prize at both the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and the Pencerdd Gwalia Competition. In 2017 Llywelyn performed the concerto In These Stones Horizons Sing alongside Gary Griffiths with world renowned composer Karl Jenkins hosted by the Milford Haven Music Festival. Apart from recent work with the Royal Opera House, he performs regularly with British Sinfonietta, British Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and Southern Sinfonia. He has also performed a U.K. tour with the Russell Watson Orchestra. In 2016 he performed Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia in Salzburg during Mozart Week shortly after working with Vasily Petrenko in Norway. He has performed for a variety of audiences and events including various Music clubs across the U.K. He performed for the Diamond Jubilee celebration of HRH Queen Elizabeth II and celebratory Wales Rugby Union events on numerous accounts. Other sporting events include hospitality engagements with the Football Association of Wales and the London 2012 Wales Olympic launch. In the summer of 2011, he accompanied Opera singer and Grammy award winner Rebecca Evans in the opening of the Richard Burton Theatre. In April 2014 Llywelyn was chosen for the late Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now scheme both as a soloist and in a duo with the soprano Jessica Robinson with whom he performed as part of the outreach programme at the Fishguard International Music Festival. The scheme has taken him to perform in many venues across Wales, Austria and Germany.

We were extremely thrilled with Llywelyn’s excellent work. He went out of the way to accommodate our special song requests (including an Indian song) and delivered them beautifully. Our guests also commented on the high standard Llywelyn’s performance. Thank you so much for making our day so special!

Llywelyn provided pre-match entertainment in the hospitality function at a National Football Cup Final in Newport. He accepted the invitation at the last minute and assisted us greatly. He was very friendly, prompt with communications and considered the audience to whom he entertained. He is an outstanding harpist and we would recommend him.
