Madeleine Mitchell and Nigel Clayton
Friday 15 June, 7.30pm
Elder Concert Hall
Madeleine Mitchell 'has been described as a violinist in a million' (BBC Radio 3), and with distinguished pianist Nigel Clayton, they bring a super programme including the ever popular Franck Violin Sonata, Gershwin's An American in Paris ("in Mitchell's highly effective arrangement" - The Times), Three pieces from Schindler's List (John Williams' film music, for violin and piano) and two pieces from their highly acclaimed recent album Violin Muse - the short tuneful piece written for Mitchell by Michael Nyman CBE and a delightful folky violin duet by Master of the Queen's Music Judith Weir, which Madeleine will play with one of Bryanston's own violinists, Katharine S. The concert concludes with a virtuosic piece by Frank Bridge, lost for 100 years, the manuscript of which Madeleine discovered before recording is on her Classic FM featured album Violin Songs.
Both artists perform worldwide and are also professors at the Royal College of Music. More info, including soundclips, video etc, is available at www.madeleinemitchell.com.
