This is a link to the Crowdfunder.co.ukViolinist Madeleine Mitchell is crowdfunding her latest project: to make an album of violin works specially written for her over the past few years, in 7 world premiere recordings of music by established UK composers. This includes a violin concerto with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Edwin Outwater, 5 works with piano including a piece by Michael Nyman and wonderful celtic violin duos by Judith Weir, Master of the Queen's Music, called 'Atlantic Drift'.
