Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to Nicola Benedetti.
After a break of two years, young Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti has burst back onto the classical music scene with a new album called Fantasie. It's packed with favourites old and new. She was aided and abetted by the Royal Liverpool Phil, The London Philharmonic, and newcomer pianist Alexei Grynyuk. Nicola talks about taking a break, and how nervewracking it is to play solo violin for some of the world's greatest orchestras.
