Benedetti plays Shostakovich

“It was thrilling to hear and watch Nicola Benedetti in a truly risk-taking performance that lived so much in the body and fused the sinews of the violin and the nerve-system of the player.” (Hilary Finch, The Times.)

Risk-taking and curiosity characterise British violinist Nicola Benedetti, born in Scotland with roots in Italy. She is just as happy to play Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons as she is to play a new piece by Turnage or a commissioned work by jazz trumpet player Wynton Marsalis. She also plays the big violin concertos with the finest performers, such as Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev on Trafalgar Square. Enjoy the very same concerto recorded live in Gothenburg with conductor Thomas Søndergaard.
