Nicola Benedetti
The Silver Violin

Nicola Benedetti - The Silver Violin

Acclaimed as one of the leading violinists of her generation, best-selling violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti turns the spotlight on Hollywood in this collection of original violin music written for the silver screen.

In planning The Silver Violin, Nicola explains, 'As a 21st-century classical musician, I am trying to discover where classical music fits into people's lives and how best to expose them to it. Nowadays, film is often people's only exposure to purely instrumental music, so making the connection through film seemed an obvious and effective link.'
