Aberfan

13th October 2016

This month sees fifty years since the disaster at Aberfan, and to commemorate this Karl Jenkins and Mererid Hopwood have written a Cantata In Memoriam. Elin was the soprano soloist at the concert, at the Wales Millennium Centre, alongside Bryn Terfel and Catrin Finch, which can be viewed now via the BBC iPlayer, and will be broadcast again on BBC Wales and BBC Four (Oct 21 and 22). Additionally, the work is being released by Deutsche Gramophon, so listen in this month on Classic FM to hear this astonishing and heartbreaking testimonial to the young lives lost.
