Programme Note

Last year the celebrated international violinist Madeleine Mitchell agreed to perform works written for her by Severnside composers. So many outstanding compositions were received, representing such a rich and fascinating range of musical styles, that she and Geoffrey Poole agreed to give two programmes. Following their memorable first visit in April they return playing works by Steven Kings and Michael Nyman (written for Madeleine's Red Violin festival and not performed in England before), and the world premiere of Jolyon Laycock’s new violin sonata inspired by a Salvador Dali painting, combined with the sublime Beethoven classic, a programme that promises to be just as inspirational as their first.
