Running alongside this prestigious concert programme will be a series of related events, including a Last Invasion Walk and a piano masterclass by Peter Donohoe, while the festival will pay special tribute to Welsh composer William Mathias.

"Mathias would have celebrated his 80th birthday in 2014," explained Peter.  "His music received many first performances at this festival in the past, and we are delighted that his daughter Dr Rhiannon Matthias will be joining us for this tribute to such a distinguished Welsh composer."
