Beethoven in Wales brings together composers, performers and music clubs to celebrate the musical life of Wales. Rhyl Music Club came up with the ambitious project of putting on the complete cycle of Beethoven’s ten Sonatas for violin and piano across three concerts in one season and asked locally resident duo Mary Hofman and Richard Ormrod to perform them. For each concert they have commissioned a new work by a Welsh female composer to reflect on and respond to the Beethoven Sonatas, thereby helping audiences to respond in turn to familiar works. It was important for this project to work with some of the wonderful female voices coming from Wales as a counter voice to, and new perspective on Beethoven.
