Violinist Emma Donald and pianist Ailsa Aitkenhead share an evening of music written exclusively by women throughout the ages. Programme to include Isabella Leonarda, Amy Beach, Lili Boulanger and Charlotte Bray. The aim of this performance is to bring to light a number of unsung female composers and their works for violin and piano.

From the Highlands of Scotland, Emma has been playing the violin since the age of 8. Growing up, she enjoyed learning both classical and traditional Scottish music, and has strived to keep both passions running simultaneously. She has a first class honours degree in Music from the University of Edinburgh, where she was leader of the three main student orchestras. This has given her the opportunity to work with inspiring conductors including Will Conway, Chris George and Russell Cowieson. Since graduating, she performs regularly with orchestras such as Mahler Players and Amicus Orchestra, her piano trio, the Hans Gal Trio, and her neo-trad fiddle and clarsach duo, Turadh. She has also worked with Scottish Ballet, and with up and coming opera group, Magnetic Opera, where she was the soloist for their production of Menotti’s The Medium in London.

Emma is a full time musician currently based in Edinburgh. She has built up a portfolio career that includes community music work, individual and ensemble teaching, and solo and group performance.
