Lorraine McAslan is one of Britain’s foremost violinists. Born in Glasgow and initially trained in London as a pupil of David Martin at the Royal Academy, she moved to New York at the age of seventeen, on the recommendation of Isaac Stern, to study with Dorothy DeLay at The Juilliard School. Since her return to Britain she has shared the concert platform with Britain’s major orchestras and conductors and appeared at Festivals throughout the United Kingdom.

She made her European début with the Bern Symphony Orchestra under Eliahu Inbal on live radio and has broadcast and appeared on television frequently in Britain. Her 21 recordings to date cover violin and piano repertoire from Beethoven to the present day. She is a strong advocate of British composers; her first recording was of the Elgar and Walton sonatas for ASV followed by a highly acclaimed Britten Violin Concerto with the English Chamber Orchestra, re-released by Naxos in 2007 (8.557198). Recent recordings for Dutton Epoch, hosting an array of composers from the 1930s, include concertos by York Bowen, Coleridge-Taylor, Arnell, Haydn Wood, and Pitfield, with the BBC Concert, Royal Scottish, and London Philharmonic Orchestras.

She teaches at the Royal Academy of Music, of which she was elected an Honorary Associate in 2007.
