Renowned violinist Madeleine Mitchell is joined by pianist Nathan Williamson for a performance full of trademark energy and intrigue. This nocturnally-inspired programme includes sonatas by Debussy and Brahms before journeying to America for absorbing night music by Bloch, Boulanger, Ned Rorem, Cage and George Crumb, finishing with Copland’s jazz-influenced Ukelele Serenade.

Not only a violinist of great virtuosity but of a very special poetic character… an independent pioneering figure... a tremendous inspiration.
