In October 2017, aged 22, Matilda won the Eric Aubier International Trumpet Competition in Rouen, France. This followed a series of successes including winning both the BBC Radio 2 Young Brass Award and the BBC Young Musician of the Year Brass Final in 2014. Matilda gave her BBC Proms Solo debut in July 2016, performing at the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Philharmonic and Alpesh Chauhan, and she also played live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune Proms Special and BBC 4’s Women’s Hour. Matilda was delighted to be chosen to replace Tine Thing Helseth for a concert with the Manchester Camerata and Jessica Cottis at the Royal Northern College of Music to celebrate International Women’s Day in March 2018. Matilda will release her debut album Direct Message on the Orchid Classics Label in October 2018, featuring 20th and 21st century works for trumpet and piano with pianist John Reid.
