Wales’ finest: 15 of the best Welsh musicians
One of the first Welsh composers to win international recognition, Hoddinott's music was championed by some of the 20th century’s most distinguished musicians. His style evolved from neo-classical to dark, brooding atonality. Karl Jenkins was a pupil. Hoddinott is pictured here in 2004 receiving an Arts Council of Wales Lifetime Achievement Award from The Prince of Wales.
