Nicola Benedetti leads the cream of Scotland’s orchestras, classical musicians and ensembles in one amazing marathon day of music at the heart of the Commonwealth Games, produced by Glasgow UNESCO City of Music. There has never been a day like this in Glasgow – it is a feast of many flavours: from Baroque to Tango, Scottish to Indian, solo to mega-orchestra. Nicola Benedetti herself undertakes a personal marathon for the day, rehearsing and performing three concerts with different orchestras: a challenge every bit as extreme as running 26 miles.
Not one, but two of Scotland’s orchestras on stage for a blockbuster concert of popular favourites and Scottish classics. Martyn Brabbins conducts the mega-orchestra and Nicola Benedetti joins for Bruch and traditional Scottish tunes.
