Grace Williams documentary

First published in News

S4C is broadcasting a special documentary about Grace Williams this Sunday night (February 23) at 8.30pm, which will be available to watch online for 35 days following the broadcast.

In the last programme of the series Mamwlad with Ffion Hague on S4C, Ffion joins the National Youth Orchestra of Wales to pay tribute to Barry musician Grace Williams – one of her generation’s most significant composers and a unique musical voice.

With Grace’s magical music as a backdrop the programme explores the influences on her work, and family and neighbours recount her diligence as she perfected her compositions. Her character is also revealed, including friendships with major composers; a failed love affair; depression and a decision to refuse an honour from the Queen.
