Madeleine Mitchell has been described by The Times as “one of Britain's liveliest musical forces [and] foremost violinists.” Her solo and chamber performances in some fifty countries are frequently broadcast, including the BBC Proms, ABC (Australia), Bayerischer Rundfunk, and Italian TV when she won the Palma d’Oro. She is well known as a recitalist, frequently representing the UK and championing British music.
Mitchell has performed concertos with orchestras including the St Petersburg Philharmonic, Czech and Polish Radio Symphony, Royal Philharmonic and BBC National Orchestra of Wales, whose live recording features on Madeleine’s latest album, Violin Muse – world-premiere recordings of works written for her by British composers.
