Nicola Benedetti. Brilliant in Chipping Campden / Stratford upon Avon Herald

Bookmark and Share

The town of Chipping Campden was last week treated to a musical extravaganza of breathtaking brilliance - two concerts within two days with Nicola Benedetti, one of the most sought-after virtuoso violinists in the world, as the star attraction on both occasions. Ms Benedetti, who combines elegance, humour and irrepressible verve in her dazzling artistry, was the soloist in two of the most famous Romantic concertos in the whole repertoire at St James' Church last Thursday and Saturday evenings. On Thursday she gave a memorable performance of the Violin Concerto in D Major, Op 77 by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) and on Saturday an equally spellbinding account of the Violin Concerto in D Major, Op 35 by Petr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893).
