Madeleine Mitchell's violin recital with renowned accompanist Andrew Ball ranges from the lyrical minimalism of Michael Nyman's On the Fiddle, and folk-influenced pieces by Stephen Montague and Stuart Jones, to the strongly-crafted Fantasia by Brian Elias, and the extraordinary effects of Nigel Osborne's solo violin piece, Taw-Raw, which Mitchell premiered at the Huddersfield Festival in 2004.

'For pioneering enterprise, the laurels ... go to an album from NMC called 'In Sunlight: Pieces for Madeleine Mitchell', a whole host of works written for this remarkable one-time leader of Peter Maxwell Davies's performing group The Fires of London. ... Andrew Ball is the excellent pianist.' The Independent

'The magnificent's difficult to know what to admire more: the dedicated penetrating musicianship of violinist Madeleine Mitchell or the sheer range of the music she has inspired.' BBC Music Magazine ★★★★★
