Priya Mitchell

“A wonderful, highly emotional as well as intellectually curious violinist“ determined Egbert Tholl in the Süddeutsche Zeitung about the Oxford-born Priya Mitchell, who received her first violin lessons at the Yehudi Menuhin School with David Takeno. With him she attended in the subsequent period, private studies and subsequently studied with Zakhar Bron at the Musikhochschule Lübeck. A highly committed chamber musician and interpreter she continues to work with, among others, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Natalie Clein, Nicolas Altsteadt, Polina Leschenko, and Alexander Lonquich. Priya Mitchell is the artistic director of the Oxford Chamber Music Festival, which she founded herself and which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. The Daily Telegraph commented: “..a world-class gathering by any standards; firmly and gently invented and managed by Priya Mitchell, whose personal touch and talent reinforces chamber music’s status as the most sociable musical form there is.”

Russian pianist Polina Leschenko  was awarded a ‘Choc’ by French music magazine le Monde de la Musique, among others, for ‘her extraordinarily powerful and virtuosic playing’ and her ‘unique sensibility’. She has worked with orchestras around the world as well as being an accomplished and admired chamber musician.
