Violinist Nicola Benedetti has captivated audiences and critics alike. The Times has printed, “it was thrilling to hear and watch Nicola Benedetti in a truly risk-taking performance that lived so much in the body and fused the sinews of the violin and the nerve-system of the player.” This sums up Benedetti’s ability to communicate and enthrall audiences with dynamic and energy-filled performances. Born in Scotland of Italian heritage, she was awarded the Queen’s Medal for Music in 2017, the youngest ever recipient, and was appointed as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in the 2013 New Year Honours. She and her longtime collaborator, Alexei Grynyuk, will perform works by Bach, Prokofiev, and Strauss, and Benedetti will give the Canadian premiere of a new solo violin piece by Wynton Marsalis, written specially for her.

Program:
Johann Sebastian Bach: Chaconne from Partita No. 2 for Solo Violin in D Minor, BWV 1004
Sergei Prokofiev: Violin Sonata No. 2 in D Major, op. 94bis
Wynton Marsalis: Fiddle Dance Suite for Solo Violin (Canadian premiere)
Richard Strauss: Violin Sonata in E flat Major, op. 18, TrV 151
