Welsh composer William Mathias only lived to be 57 years old, but composed a large amount of work. Much of it is not considered to be great work; however, some of it is excellent, and Mathias has been deemed as one of the great Welsh composers. Mathias wrote in different styles, but there is a slight Welsh flavor throughout his pieces. Here he wrote works of all kinds, some of which are still performed today. He studied piano with Peter Katin (b. 1930), and composition with Sir Lennox Berkeley (1903 - 1989), himself a former student of Nadia Boulanger, and a friend of Stravinsky and Poulenc.
