Madeleine Mitchell Lunchtime Recital

SOJOURNER TRUTH
The Venue, Leeds Conservatoire

FREE EVENT

Madeleine Mitchell – violin
Nigel Clayton – piano

Lili Boulanger – Nocturne
Prokofiev – Cinq Melodies No 1 & 3
DvoÅ™ák – Sonatina, Op 100
Amy Beach – Romance
Errollyn Wallen – Sojourner Truth (for Madeleine Mitchell, 2021)
Bridge – Morceau caractéristique

American composer Amy Beach wrote her Romance in 1893, the same year as DvoÅ™ák’s Sonatine was written when he was living in America. Prokofiev wrote his Five Melodies as songs without words for a tour in California with soprano, later arranging them for violin and piano when he was back in Paris – the home of Lili Boulanger, who died tragically young. Sojourner Truth was an extraordinary American abolitionist and Errollyn Wallen’s piece for Madeleine Mitchell is based on the spiritual O’er the Crossing – premiered on International Women’s Day 2021. The programme is completed by a virtuosic piece by Frank Bridge, discovered in manuscript a century after the premiere by Madeleine and recorded on her album Violin Songs along with the Boulanger and Prokofiev pieces.

This concert will last approximately 50 minutes.

Music by Errollyn Wallen
Libretto by Deborah Brevoort

A story about the enduring pull of freedom – and the ends to which people will go to achieve it.

Juba Freeman arrives in London after winning his freedom from slavery by fighting for the British in the Revolutionary War. Thrown headfirst into British society, he meets Amelia Alumond, a member of the British Black gentry, and reconnects with other ex-slaves who are struggling to build new lives for themselves as free men. Inspired by historical events, the opera sheds a light on a forgotten corner of history – and challenges current assumptions of what life was like in 18th-century London for a person of colour.
