Nicola Benedetti's debut album on the Decca label is her first recording of baroque violin repertoire. Recorded in Edinburgh, the album celebrates Nicola Benedetti's Scottish-Italian heritage as she plays virtuoso Italian masterpieces, accompanied by the leading chamber orchestra of her native Scotland. The album highlights baroque favourites including Summer from Vivaldi's ever-popular Four Seasons and Tartini's famous Devil's Trill sonata, for which Nicola is joined by a hand-picked chamber ensemble.
The generous selection ranges from the sparkling virtuosity of the opening Vivaldi Concerto Grosso Mogul, to the poignant lament of the Veracini Largo and the lyrical beauty of the two arrangements of Vivaldi vocal works, including the haunting Nulla in mundo pax sincera. The orchestra is directed from the harpsichord by leading baroque specialist Christian Curnyn.
Nicola Benedetti was the first ever Scot to win the BBC's Young Musician Of The Year in 2004, since when she has established a top-level international career, appearing with leading orchestras across Europe, North America and Japan.

I'm resurrecting here some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real project behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the tide. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
