About William Alwyn
Musician who loved dissonance. He invented an alternative to 12-tone serialism. He was also a polyglot, poet, and artist.
He entered the Royal Academy of Music in London when he was only 15 years old. His virtuosity as a flautist gained him great renown, and he even played the flute with the London Symphony Orchestra.
His cousin on his mother’s side was actor Gary Cooper.
His composition “Lyra Angelica” became popular after figure-skater Michelle Kwan performed to it at the 1998 Winter Olympics.
