Spring Concert 2024 – Featuring Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1

Saturday, March 16th: 19:30 to 21:00

A Spring Concert with the Cornwall Concert Orchestra

We are deilghted to welcome back Madeleine Pickering to perform Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1 with us. Madeleine previously played the Mendelssohn Concerto in E Minor with us in June 2022, which was a hugely popular success. Whether you saw her or not, do make every effort to come and see her play.

Madeleine studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Maureen Smith, Tasmin Little and Michael Foyle (violin), Garfield Jackson and Martin Outram (viola). She has been the recipient of several prizes, including the Theodore Holland Viola Prize (2016), the Winifred Small Prize for Solo Violin (2020) and the Martin/Hooton Violin Concerto Prize (2021). She became a member of the Musicians’ Company Young Artists’ Programme in 2019 when she received the Biddy Baxter and John Hosier Music Trust Special Award, and she is a Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artist 2021-22 for Making Music UK. She enjoys working with the London Symphony Orchestra, Mozart Symphony Orchestra, Fantasia Orchestra, Echo Ensemble and Piccadilly Sinfonietta. She plays on a violin by Giovanni Pistucci c.1800, generously loaned to her by the Harrison-Frank Foundation in association with J&A Beare.
