Speaking of the performance the RSNO said:
‘What can we tell you about Nicola Benedetti – except that when the nation’s favourite violinist teams up with the RSNO, something exciting happens. In a special treat for Scottish fans, Nicola will perform Sibelius’ hugely popular Violin Concerto ahead of her European tour with the RSNO in January. With Shostakovich’s firecracker overture raising the curtain, and a visit to the fantastical world of Modest Mussorgsky, be prepared to enjoy an evening filled with wonderful music.’
