OUT NOW | Violinist Nicola Benedetti's New CD: 'Wynton Marsalis Violin Concerto' [LISTEN]

Decca Records has announced the release of Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti's new album: 'Wynton Marsalis Violin Concerto'

Decca Records has this week announced the release of Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti's new album: Wynton Marsalis Violin Concerto'.

Recorded with conductor Cristian Măcelaru and the Philadelphia Orchestra, the disc features Wynton Marsalis' newly-premiered Violin Concerto in D Major - and Fiddle Dance Suite.

''I have known Wynton since I was 17 and he has been a musical mentor to me ... I have always loved his music and in 2012 I went to see Simon Rattle conduct the London Symphony in the British premiere of Wynton’s Swing Symphony ... there was something about the atmosphere in the hall once the piece finished that I’d never experienced in a concert hall before ...." Nicola has told The Violin Channel.

"When I think of uplifting music written for the violin, it is usually quite virtuosic and proud - this work has a very different type of uplift ..." she has said.

''I hope the recording speaks to those with a curiosity in crossing cultures, and in complex, colourful and uplifting music ... this music affirms a belief I’ve held since childhood - that when we strip away our concepts of race, religion or culture, our DNA shows more similarity than difference."
