Internationally acclaimed violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti is a much-loved favourite at the Festival, and here curates a thrilling new programme of sizzling Vivaldi and Telemann. In her second collaboration with Richard Egarr and the brilliant Academy of Ancient Music, she combines her ferocious technique and her astonishing natural ability with an innate understanding of music of the Baroque era. This concert promises to be one of the Festival’s highlights.
