Head of School of Strings; Tutor in Violin Biography:
Since founding the Goldberg Ensemble in 1982, Malcolm has become well known to audiences as its director and conductor. He has appeared with the ensemble in concerts and on radio and television throughout the world and has given many first performances of pieces written both for him and the ensemble, many of which have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
In March 2001 he directed the Goldberg Ensemble in its exciting new Contemporary Music Festival, in Manchester, Wolverhampton and Leeds, which was an acclaimed success and has now become firmly established in the new music season. He also conducted the ensemble in their first disc for Naxos of music by Nicola LeFanu and more recordings are planned.
In addition to his work with the Goldberg Ensemble, he is also leader of the London Bach Orchestra and has directed them in concerts at the Barbican and the Queen Elizabeth Hall and throughout Europe. He has appeared as guest leader and soloist with many orchestras including the City of London Sinfonia, the Orchestra of St. John's Smith Square, the Northern Sinfonia, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra. In 1995, he made his American debut as soloist at Carnegie Hall, followed by an invitation to be guest concertmaster at the Carmel Bach Festival in California.
Malcolm plays a very fine Gennaro Gagliano violin of 1768.
