The long-awaited album featuring our mighty trio of artists – violinist Nicola Benedetti, composer Wynton Marsalis and conductor Cristian Macelaru is finally out today on Decca Classics! The much talked-about Marsalis Violin Concerto recorded with The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Marsalis Fiddle Dance Suite, it is available for download here.
Nicola said, “It has been a privilege to learn and perform these two inspired and unequivocal masterpieces, and to deepen my understanding of Wynton’s compositional language, cultural richness and philosophical insights.”
Wynton shared about the concerto, “Nicky asked me to ‘invite a diverse world of people into the experience of this piece’. Because finding and nurturing common musical ground between differing arts and musical styles has been a lifetime fascination of mine, I was already trying to welcome them.
