Anglo-Welsh composer, Dalwyn Henshall studied with William Mathias at Bangor University and 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 musical outlook and compositional style which has always been "mainstream traditional", actively eschewing modernism and avant-garde technique.

He retired from professional and public life in 2002 following a serious illness, and composes, nowadays, purely for his own entertainment and vanity having destroyed and disowned about half his mature output.

I am prepared to set out the orchestral accompaniment for brass-, wind-, or military band any of the concerted or orchestral works with a little notice and a programmed performance. The Trumpet Concerto, for example, would work - I think - particularly well with cornet solo, and the Bassoon Concerto with saxophone or euphonium. I should particularly like to do this for Vestamnviiki!
