Fiona Frank

Fiona Frank was born in 1961 and grew up in Cheshire. She was the first girl to sing in the church choir and had a rich musical life, getting involved in madrigal, choral, chamber and orchestral groups. Her main instrument is the violin and she has been taught by Lydia Mordkovich (favourite pupil of David Oistrakh), Roger Huckle (leader of the Bristol Ensemble, formerly the Emerald Ensemble), and Frances Mason (Leader of the Rasoumovsky Quartet and London Mozart Players). She also enjoyed playing under the baton of James Lowe in the New Bristol Sinfonia. Recent performances of her work include the premiere of "Tintern Abbey"- a three movement string quartet, at the Tintern Michaelmas Festival in September 2011 and several performances of a double concerto by Concordia Mundi in Hereford in November 2011. She has written over 20 works during the 2011, which include full orchestral and choral, string orchestral, piano and chamber genres.
