Now I Become Myself

20 November, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In this Annual Richard Burton Lecture, Welsh composer Rhian Samuel will talk about her life as a composer of classical music in the USA and the UK, from a time when women composers were an extreme rarity to today when they are much more prevalent. In what ways may this change have enriched our culture? She will be aided by Siân Dicker (soprano) and Kristal Tunnicliffe (piano), who will perform ‘Cerddi Hynafol’ (Ancient Songs), settings of three medieval Welsh texts apparently by women, and the song ‘Before Dawn’, set to a poem, ‘Mourning to Do’, by American May Sarton.

This event is part of the ‘Rediscovering Swansea: From Land to Sea’ hub series, by Swansea University.
