Description: Mathias was one of the most significant and prolific Welsh composers of the 20th century. His flexible and highly approachable style can be heard in the holiday mood of the Suite Parisienne, the brilliance and lyricism of the Capriccio for flute and piano and the wonderfully rhapsodic harp sonata. Texts available online. Jeremy Huw Williams (baritone) and 11 other performers (all from the University of Arizona faculty and/or the Tucson Symphony!).
