About this concert

Marking the 250th anniversary of Telemann's death, we welcome Nicola Benedetti who joins Richard Egarr and AAM for the first time.

Performing this programme with gut strings - which she has described as having a more 'human' sound than that offered by their modern counterparts - Nicola brings to life music including Telemann's Frogs concerto (where the violns and violas imitate a chorus of croaking amphibians), and Vivaldi's sizzling Il Grosso Mogul where solo and orchestral parts mesh together in a feast of virtuosity. Opening the concert, soloists from AAM join Nicola in Telemann's Concerto for Four Violins.

"This is an artist who exudes star quality; her exquisite playing combining true virtuosity and a deep musical intelligence" HERALD SCOTLAND

"...a truly mesmerising and absorbing solo performance. Her interpretation was nothing short of sublime" BACHTRACK
