Since Nicola Benedetti performed with us in 2012, her career has exploded, making her one of the most influential classical artists today.

We are pleased to bring her back to perform the beautiful Korngold Violin Concerto, a lush, lyrical piece, perfectly suited to her style. We’re coupling it with Dvořák’s fresh and melodious Symphony No. 8.
