Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Nicola Benedetti has captivated audiences and critics alike with her musicality and poise. Ms. Benedetti now records a Romantic album of Tchaikovsky and Bruch concertos with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Her fans have been asking for her to record this for years and now she finally has!

"Her approach to the Tchaikovsky is both full-blooded and sensitive. She rides the first movement’s emotional storms with utter confidence and complete command of old Romantic tricks...The central canzonetta is taken very slowly, yet the flow of feeling never stops, and her magically sustained pianissimos deserve an Oscar." -The Times

"Her tone is beautiful, and more varied than in some of her earlier recordings: she can be caressing, incisive and yielding within a short space of time." -BBC Music Magazine

"A sweetness of tone... lends a charming vulnerability to her performance, which suits the slow movement [of the Tchaikovsky] beautifully... the lush, romantic sound of the Bruch suits her assured and lyrical playing." -Classic FM

"Nicola Benedetti can be proud of this disc...there's a flexibility, a confidence and a rapport here that makes for consistently rewarding listening... hers is so well thought-out an interpretration [of the Tchaikovsky] and it's so alertly accompanied that it merits serious attention: it is a performance that has few quirks but bags of conviction." -International Record Review
