Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto requires a very specific kind of sound: lithe, transparent, pure, elegant, fine-spun – all qualities that Benedetti possesses in abundance. BBC Music Magazine

Are there any stories in all music more tragic and inspiring than those of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Felix Mendelssohn?  Two child prodigies whose genius thrilled the world, who both died far too early. However, their music has lived on for a grateful world to enjoy ever since. They both wrote concertos that are among the perennial favourites of audiences everywhere. Nicola Benedetti plays both solo and duo (partnered by the superb viola player Lawrence Power) in an unmissable highlight of the season.
