More Details:

  • Two great Romantic-era favorites: Brahms cherished tradition and structures, while Tchaikovsky relished freedom and experimentation.
  • A concerto is almost always written for one solo instrument with orchestra. Beethoven’s Triple and Brahms’ Double are rare exceptions.
  • Early critics of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 couldn’t say enough bad things about it. A German reviewer in 1897 wrote: “The composer’s twaddle disturbed my mood…” It is now one of the most frequently performed symphonies in the world.
  • Nicola Benedetti and Leonard Elschenbroich are musical and life partners, sharing a home in Britain.
  • In her homeland of Scotland, Benedetti’s developed an innovative music education initiative for young string players called The Benedetti Sessions.
