Osborne/ Powers/ Nyman &c : In Sunlight

Madeleine Mitchell's violin recital with reknowned 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 new solo violin piece, Taw-Raw, which Mitchell premiered at the Huddersfield Festival in 2004. The CD was supported by the Royal College of Music, the RVW Trust and the American Embassy, London.

"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, 2005
