Distinguished British violinist Madeleine Mitchell, described by The TImes as 'one of the UK's liveliest musical forces (and) foremost violinists' returns to Boulder following her recital 2 years ago, with Tamara Goldstein, of British music, for which they received a standing ovation.
Her introduced recital includes glorious British music, from the popular salon pieces by Elgar to a tuneful piece specially written for Madeleine Mitchell by the well known film composer Michael Nyman from her latest album Violin Muse. See her live recording here: https://www.facebook.com/ClassicFM/videos/10155925470844260/ The program includes two works from 1917 - the major sonata by John Ireland written during World War 1 for the great British violinist Albert Sammons, and the exquisite 3 Pieces by Howells, including a Russian Lament in the year of the Russian Revolution. It ends with a virtuosic work of 1908 by Frank Bridge, teacher of Benjamin Britten, recorded by Mitchell on her acclaimed album Violin Songs. The concert will be followed by an album signing www.madeleinemitchell.com
