Nicola Benedetti releases Homecoming: A Scottish Fantasy / MPR interview

Bookmark and Share

Nicola Benedetti talks with Minnesota Public Radio's Julie Amacher about her new album - Homecoming: A Scottish Fantasy, an exploration of Scotland-born Benedetti's roots. At the heart of the album is Max Bruch's Scottish Fantasy, performed with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. She also plays a tribute to songwriter and poet Robert Burns, who composed some Scotland's most beloved songs and is from the same county as Benedetti. And in an unusual move for a Classical soloist, she presents traditional Scottish folk music with leading musicians of the style Phil Cunningham, Aly Bain, and Julie Fowlis.
