Nicola Benedetti is one music’s great communicators. She brings her innate musicianship and dynamic presence to Bruch’s seductive concerto, justifiably popular for its lyricism and invention.

Berlioz’ symphony has its lyrical interludes too, but is perhaps most famous for its depiction of macabre witches’ sabbath and march to the scaffold as it hurtles toward its fantastical conclusion. A super-enlarged Aurora orchestra perform it entirely from memory amplifying its wild excesses in a thrilling white-knuckle ride.
