Nicola Benedetti, violin
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra / Kirill Karabits
Alexander Sitkovetsky, Thomas Dunn, Leonard Elschenbroich, Alexei Grunyuk, Ksenija Sidorova

“Benedetti decorates this repertoire with gleaming high-register pirouettes, plus vibrato throbs and hesitations that never descend into schmaltz. Such good taste is a pleasure…” The Times
“Scotland’s superstar violinist Nicola Benedetti is an unabashed champion of the composer and his work… her performance is beautifully honed with a particularly atmospheric account…” BBC Music Magazine
“Benedetti, with her seductive, shining tone and easy melodic fluency, and of course her formidable virtuosity, is at home in all this music…” The Strad
“Benedetti need not fear comparison… for her broadly romantic approach and genuine affection for this Hollywood-inspired concerto shine out… Benedetti is joined by star accordionist Ksenija Sidorova in a show-stopping performance which will have you on your feet!” Gramophone
