The violin – carefully and artistically sculpted from thin wood and with only four slender strings, held aloft and gleaming in the spotlights – is a modest, unassuming instrument. But then the brilliant young London-born violinist Mathilde Milwidsky draws her bow across the strings and brings them to life, creating dynamic, vibrant waves of sound. Hear the magic!
Fresh from a summer of concert performances throughout the UK and abroad, Mathilde continues our inaugural Musica Viva season in Levinsky Hall with an imaginative programme of exciting violin works – both solo and collaborative.
Mathilde is performing with pianist and composer Huw Watkins in expressive, stirring and demanding works of Ravel, Bartok, Walton, and Watkins himself. And ever an adventurous virtuoso, she is also playing two solo violin works: Paganini’s 24th Caprice, a violin showstopper – so extraordinary was Paganini’s own playing that he was reputed to be in league with the Devil! – and Huw’s dramatic 2006 composition Partita for solo violin, commissioned by the BBC.
Join us for this unusual, exhilarating concert!
