‘Portrait of a Lost Icon’ celebrates the quality and genius of Owen’s creativity, showcasing her astonishing and diverse output, from her natural affinity with the medium of song and her growing authority writing for piano whilst revealing aspects of her engaging personality through the personal letters she wrote to Eliot Crawshay-Williams.
Internationally renowned soprano, Elin Manahan Thomas, sings the songs and reads her letters, accompanied by Brian Ellsbury, the first pianist to record Morfydd Owen’s solo piano works. Elin and Brian have recently recorded an album of Morfydd Owen’s songs and piano music at Nimbus Records which has just been released on the Tŷ Cerdd label.
