On October 4th, as part of Swansea Festival, Elin will give the premiere of a song cycle by composer-conductor-pianist Jeff Howard. Featuring texts by Welsh poets Gillian Clarke, Nigel Jenkins, Vernon Watkins and Islwyn, the cycle has Swansea as its focus, and is a rare chance to hear these stunning Anglo-Welsh poems set to music. The concert will take part in the Great Hall, in the Bay Campus at Swansea University where Elin is also an Honorary Fellow. It will form part of a recital called ‘My own country’, including songs by Debussy, Britten, Schubert and more.
