Details

This dance theatre work reflects upon the life of celebrated 20th century composer Morfydd Owen, who was friends with the likes of DH Lawrence and Ezra Pound and whose husband was Freud's closest associate. It is accompanied almost entirely by a live score of the composer's own works. Born in the Welsh valleys in 1891, Morfydd Owen's talent for music flourished from an early age, with her first hymns published while she was still a teenager. Amongst the awards, scholarships and acclaim was a woman fiercely loyal to Welsh music and yet famed for her beauty and sense of fun. In her few short years she won more awards than anyone in the entire history of the Royal Academy of Music. I loved you and I loved you follows the composer's story from humble beginnings to her meteoric rise as a composer while touching upon the turbulent relationships that marked much of her early twenties, telling her unique and compelling life story through to her early death at the age of just 26. Considered one of Wales's most talented musicians and composers, she is little known outside of Wales and there are relatively few recordings of her work.
