Honens @ Home: Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner performs Oquin

Today we are pleased to feature Honens Finalist and winner of the 2018 Audience Award, Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner. In his Semifinals solo round, Llewellyn performed American composer Wayne Oquin's Détours. The piece, dedicated to Marc-André Hamelin, follows a set of 15 variations (or "detours"), each flowing continuously after the last. It travels between points of extremity: from delicate to solid, from fleeting to expansive. As you'll hear from Jon Kimura Parker, the piece is, at all times, extraordinary. -Watch the video edition of this excerpt at honens.com/home.
