Dalwyn Henshall


Born: 1957


Anglo-Welsh composer Dalwyn Henshall studied with William Mathias at Bangor University and later with Einojuhani Rautavaara at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki whilst in receipt of both a Welsh Arts Council Award to Young Artists and a Finnish Government State Scholarship. Subsequent doctoral and (Finnish Government funded) post-doctoral researches in Scandinavian and Finnish nationalism in music have profoundly affected his compositional style which has always been "mainstream traditional" even at at a time when this was deeply unfashionable.
