Since founding the Goldberg Ensemble in 1982, Malcolm has become well known to audiences as its director and conductor.

Former Chetham's violin teacher Malcolm Layfield cleared of rape
The violinist, who had denied the charge, was also head of strings at the Royal Northern College of Music
June 9, 2015
Former Royal Northern College of Music head of strings Malcolm Layfield has been cleared of raping an 18-year-old student in the early 1980s when he was a violin teacher at Chetham's School of Music in the UK (pictured). A jury at Manchester Crown Court took less than 90 minutes to acquit Layfield, who had denied the allegation.
Layfield had admitted having 'inappropriate sexual relationships' with several former students, including his accuser, but pleaded not guilty to the rape - said to have happened in the back of his car at a camp in Cornwall, the summer after she left the school.
Following the initial incident, the two had a consensual relationship, but the accuser had claimed she 'went along' with the affair as she was under Layfield's 'power and influence', which was 'critical' to the success of her career.
'Today's unanimous verdict comes as a huge relief to Malcolm Layfield who would like to thank friends, family and his legal team and all those who have supported him over the last two years,' said Layfield's solicitor Matthew Claughton.
