Named a 2023 Classic FM Rising Star: 30 under 30, and Gramophone Magazine's ‘One to Watch', British violinist Mathilde Milwidsky has been praised by The Strad for her "perfect intonation and beautiful shaping and colouring, comprehensively nailing each new stylistic and emotional universe as she went”. Mathilde performs regularly at Festivals across Europe, including Verbier (Solo & Chamber Academy), Edinburgh, Two Moors, Lerici, and Ernen, alongside artists including Avi Avital, Brett Dean, Anthony Marwood and Mark Simpson. Winner of the Royal Overseas League String Competition, Mathilde was awarded 3rd Prize at the Windsor Festival International String Competition 2019 and was the only British participant of the prestigious 2024 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. She has worked closely with esteemed composers including Sally Beamish, Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Huw Watkins and her debut CD, of Agnes Zimmerman's three Sonatas for violin and piano led to being named Classical Music Magazine's Artist of the Month. Mathilde teachers have included Viktoria Grigoreva, David Takeno, György Pauk and Mi-kyung Lee.

Born into a family of musicians from Bucharest, Cristian Sandrin has been surrounded by classical music all his life.  He is an artist engaging with a multitude of repertoire, but especially devoted to the Classical repertoire - a passion that has led him to conduct numerous piano concertos by Mozart from the keyboard including for the official opening of the Angela Burgess Recital Hall at the Royal Academy of Music. The year 2017 was marked by his successful and critically well received debut solo recital at the Wigmore Hall. From 2018–2020 he was privileged to tour all corners of the UK as an artist of the Countess of Munster Recital Scheme. Not least, Cristian is a scholarship holder of the Imogen Cooper Music Trust benefiting from her unique one-to-one guidance and mentorship since 2017. Cristian's journey to the music world has been supported by numerous benefactors, including the Tillett Trust, the Hattori Trust, the Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, the Cohen Foundation, the Harold Craxton Memorial Trust and the Royal Society of Musicians. . His debut album Enescu, Ravel, Scott: Correspondances  explores the poetry and music of the fin de siècle music scene, being released by the Belgian label Antarctica.
