Nicola Benedetti - SCO Beethoven program at Edinburgh's Usher Hall gets 4 stars from Herald Scotland

Bookmark and Share

Nicola Benedetti played Beethoven with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at Usher Hall last Thursday 19th January. With an all Beethoven programme, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra with soloist Nicola Benedetti gave a balanced and insightful performance of three of the composer's works on Thursday evening. Opening with Leonore Overture No 1, one of no less than four possible overtures penned by the composer for his only opera, Fidelio, the orchestra displayed a mature, polished sound, if a little safe, under conductor Emeritus Joseph Swensen.
