Notes & Reviews:

17 year old Nicola Benedetti, who became the first Scot to win the BBC Young Musician of 2004, releases her debut album, which Nicola recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra. The recording was conducted by 29 year old Daniel Harding, who was recently appointed Principal Guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, and Music Director of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. The album includes the sophisticated Szymanowski Concerto No 1, which Nicola brought to the public's attention last year. Alongside popular favourites by Saint-Saens, Massenet and Chausson recording also features a new Sir John Taverner work, entitled Fragment for the Virgin that was especially written for Nicola.

Benedetti shows a real individuality and maturity. It's an interesting programme well suited to her excellent technique and tone, which she intuitively adapts to suit each of the works...Best of all though is her stunningly mature performance of the Chausson Poème. This piece suits her playing perfectly and she produces a consistent line throughout as good as some of the greats of the past.
