Distinguished violinist Madeleine Mitchell, described by The Herald as 'a violinist in a million', performs appealing works by Scottish and American composers, including John McLeod CBE who will introduce his work for film, 'Another Time, Another Place' at the Scottish Arts Club and works written for Madeleine by Sir James MacMillan and Nigel Osborne MBE - celebrating his 70th birthday, together with works by Americans Copland, Amy Beach and Gershwin 'An American in Paris' ‘in Mitchell’s highly effective arrangement” (The Times).

Madeleine is joined by the pianist Nigel Clayton with whom she has given many successful recitals including London’s Wigmore Hall, Singapore Victoria Hall, BBC Radio 3 and a recent acclaimed album - 'Violin Muse'. This also includes violin duos by Judith Weir CBE, Master of the Queen’s Music, entitled ‘Atlantic Drift’ celebrating the flow of traditional music between Scotland and America.
Madeleine Mitchell has performed as soloist and chamber musician in 50 countries at major festivals including the BBC Proms. Her discography has been widely acclaimed with 2 albums nominated for BBC Music Awards. Recent engagements include recitals in Canberra, Moscow, USA, London and a Concerto recorded live with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. She was awarded the prestigious Fulbright/ITT Fellowship to the USA and started her career as the violinist in Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s seminal group The Fires of London.
