@ Tom Davoren Music Ask owner
Riding to Olwen was composed in 2016 for the University of Nevada Las Vegas Wind Orchestra and their director Prof. Thomas Leslie.

The piece falls into a specific area of Tom Davoren’s output focusing on stories from ‘The Mabinogion’, a book of Welsh folklore and earliest recorded prose literature in the British Isles. Olwen is the beautiful daughter of the giant Ysbaddaden Pencawr. A spell of infatuation for Olwen is cast on Prince Cullwch son of Cilydd, who is then charged by the giant with completing a series of impossible tasks to win her hand. This music is Tom’s imagining of the riding of Cullwch and his knight’s on their first quest; rampant, adrenaline field and laced with anticipation.

The opening theme (Olwen’s theme) and subject matter is also the focus of Tom’s trumpet sonata, ‘Trails for Olwen.’
