Violinist Nicola Benedetti is hard at work once more, following some time out to gain a perspective on her working life and achieve a better work-life balance.
The 23-year-old told Classic FM’s Bob Jones, “I went through a period where I felt I was playing catch up all the time. I'm still on a treadmill, just one I can keep up with now.”
Listening to an average day in the life of Nicola – flight down from Aberdeen at 6am (after finishing a gig at midnight), all morning teaching at the Royal College of Music, a host of media interviews, lunch on the go, a quick takeover of Classic FM's Facebook page and some rehearsals – it hardly sounds like she's ‘rethought her entire schedule’, but Nicola says the travelling is “definitely on a lesser scale than before”.
