    Classical Music, Composer John Mitchell - New Classical Music
Hi, I'm Vicky. Welcome to the official site of my husband, American composer John Mitchell. His music is unique in today's world. As classical as that of Beethoven or Schubert, but informed by a passion for rock 'n roll. As accessible as movie music, but of enduring value. Connected to what is deepest and truest in the human heart.

Old and new.

John and I performed in a concert celebrating the completion of the new First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Santa Monica, California, September 20, 2009. There's an mp4 file of John's performance: John Organ Recital. It's 30 minutes long, so be patient - it will take a few minutes to download even with a fast connection. (There were "technical problems" with the video of me - I forgot to recharge the camera.)

Recital at Brand Library in Glendale, California, Saturday, January 22, 2005 at 7 PM. click on the link for details.

The Sheremetyev Ensemble recorded four of John's chamber works in the summer and autumn of 2002 in Moscow, and that CD, Mitchell in Moscow, is available from CD Baby. In 2003 Seven Color Pieces for piano were recorded by Olga Papikian, and several of the Spanish songs by Yvonne Regalado Martin.

A CD of chamber music for wind instruments by MMC Recordings was recorded in Boston in 2005, with John's Op. 3 Sonata for Clarinet performed by Grammy-winning clarinetist Richard Stoltzman.

In addition to music, you can also find here pictures of famous poets, those whose works John has set to music: William Shakespeare, Michelangelo, John Donne, William Blake, Emily Brontë, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, Pablo Neruda, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, and many more.

We are very happy to present for the first time the music of a young and gifted composer: Julian Rasmussen of the Faroe Islands.

Here is the original first page: John Mitchell Art Songs 1964-2001. Obviously I had a lot to learn! John typed the list of his compositions--I was overwhelmed by the prospect of doing it myself. Everything done with computers, I've done. John spends most of his time writing music.
