The soloist in the Part 2 is the Welsh pianist Llŷr Williams, playing the Fantasia Op.77 and Choral Fantasy.

Incidentally, during the interval (= intermission), two jazz pianists David Rees-Williams and Zoe Rahman 'recreate' (sort of) the kind of improvisation duels that Luddy used to take part in, improvising on themes from the Pastoral and 5th symphonies.


"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."
