Gwyl Gregynog Festival: BARTOK Suite Paysanne Hongroise, MOZART Andante in C, WATKINS Capriccio, POULENC Flute Sonata, DEBUSSY Syrinx, PROKOFIEV Flute Sonata:

“Flautist Adam Walker is a stunning talent. At 22, he plays with the artistry of a performer of maturer years, and this opening recital of the Gwyl Gregynog festival, given with pianist Huw Watkins, showed what an exciting prospect he represents. It was not simply Walker’s display of virtuosity – graceful and apparently effortless – that was astonishing, but his ability to characterise the music so vividly.”
