... a formidable musician as well as a formidable pianist, with a feeling for the way harmony can create architecture as well as momentary colours – a rare gift

The Telegraph

Rises to the occasion with depth of feeling, nuance and technical brilliance.

The Independent

Adventurous yet as sophisticated and technically brilliant as ever, Gwilym Simcock’s latest album marks a new stage in his career.

Birdsong / Cân Yr Adar

Gwilym on BBC Radio 4

By | News | No Comments

Gwilym will be on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 22nd January at 4 p.m. talking about his latest project “Birdsong” with Welsh singer songwriter Kizzy Crawford.  Kizzy Crawford returns to the RSPB nature reserve at Carngafallt in Mid Wales, where she was inspired to create “Can Yr Adar – Birdsong” with Gwilym and members of Sinfonia Cymru. Kizzy and Gwilym share how they wove music out of the landscape and wildlife she found at Wales’s own ‘Celtic rainforest’, and they open a window on the hidden processes of creation, collaboration and communication that gave birth to a brand new work of art. 

The programme will be aired again on Saturday 28th January at 11:30 p.m. and will be available on the BBC Radio4 website for some time afterwards
