Violinist Nicola Benedetti's latest album is completely devoted to the music of Wynton Marsalis, and two big works written specifically for her. Benedetti's new album on Decca Classics features Marsalis: Violin Concerto in D and Fiddle Dance Suite for Solo Violin. 

Benedetti performs Violin Concerto in D with The Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Cristian Măcelaru who has collaborated with the violinist to perform the work six times. The concerto was co-commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO), Ravinia, LA Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra Washington, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic. Benedetti performed the world premiere with the LSO under conductor James Gaffigan in London in November 2015. 

Benedetti talked with with 90.5: WUOL - Louisville KY Daniel Gilliam about their strong collaboration through out the writing and recording process.
