This review is from: Nicola Benedetti: Mendelssohn, MacMillan, Mozart (Audio CD)
Having been a fan since first seeing Nicola on Young Musician of the Year I can honestly say that this is my favourite album of hers to date. At still such a young age Nicola has an incredible talent that definitely seems to be rapidly increasing and the pieces on this album really showcase her brilliant ability. The Mendelssohn and Mozart pieces are played with such skill, emotion and verve that it is hard to believe that Nicola is still only 18 years old. Schubert's Serenade is just marvellous and premiere of a newly composed piece by James MacMillan, entitled 'From Ayrshire' is a fitting end to a superb album.
A brilliant young talent, ever growing in confidence and ability this album is an essential for all classical music fans and one that will see Nicola Benedetti's reputation grow and grow.
