Jamie MacDougall catches up with Scotland's superstar violinist, Nicola Benedetti, to chat about her latest album with Wynton Marsalis, her new series of videos for young musicians and her recent visit to the Palace to collect a CBE. In this week's 'Future Classics', Gareth Williams sings the praises of 'Feather and Groove', a work by English contemporary classical composer Tanzy Davies; plus Principal Bass Clarinet with RSNO, Duncan Swindells, proves that being a busy musician is not a barrier to writing your own spy novel.
