Notes & Reviews:

Young Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti caused a sensation in 2004 when she won the BBC Young Musician of the Year and wowed the audience and judges alike with her performance of Szymanowski's 'Violin Concerto,' which later became the repertoire for her debut CD. The repertoire for her follow-up album focuses on Mendelssohn's 'Violin Concerto' and also includes a world premiere two-movement piece by fellow-Scot, James MacMillan, composed especially for Benedetti. The title 'From Ayrshire' is a reference to the musicians' shared home country. Both of these pieces and a new arrangement of Schubert's 'Serenade (Leise flehen meine Lieder, D957)' are conducted by James MacMillan with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
