RSNO Søndergård and Benedetti

7:30pm, Friday 08 February 2019

Thomas Søndergård CONDUCTOR

Nicola Benedetti VIOLIN

Royal Scottish National Orchestra

 

‘Nicola Benedetti – now, she really can play!’ says the American jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. Not that we need telling! There’s a good reason why Benedetti is the nation’s favourite classical violinist, and when she plays the concerto that Marsalis wrote specially for her in 2015, something sensational happens: one critic called her performance ‘barnstorming’. Thomas Søndergård conducts – and bluesy, jazz-flavoured classics by Thomas Adès and Gershwin get the evening off to a swinging start.
