Elgar Sonata for violin and piano, Op. 82
Lili Boulanger Nocturne
Brahms Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108
‘A violinist in a million’ and ‘one of the UK’s liveliest musical forces’ are just two of the glowing reviews Madeleine has attracted in a career which tells of virtuoso technique, exhilarating thinking and broad imagination in repertoire.
At ease in all genres, her career cannot be defined without noticing an unquenchable curiosity and a refreshing balance between the powerful and the poetic. Her charisma and musical personality never fail to attract acclaim and she has long been lauded as one of this country’s leading violinists.
Her programme typically includes two works with centenary importance, the exceptional Lilli Boulanger’s sadly premature death, and the writing of another of Elgar’s rare chamber works. This is a programme of bitter sweets and emotional depth.
