The UK's favourite violinist, Nicola Benedetti, celebrates a milestone year for Scotland with an album which is a true reflection of her native homeland. With a stunning new recording of Bruch's Scottish Fantasy as its centrepiece, the album also includes some of Scotland's best loved songs such as Loch Lomond, My Love is Like a Red Red Rose together with collaborations with Scotland's most eminent folk musicians including Phil Cunningham, Aly Bain and folk singer Julie Fowlis (whose voice can be heard on the Disney/Pixar hit film, Brave). The new album is perhaps the most personal Nicola has ever recorded, bringing together two musical traditions, classical and Scottish folk; worlds that have, for centuries, co-existed but rarely been recorded alongside one another. Scottish Fantasy, a composition for violin and orchestra by Max Bruch (completed in 1880), brilliantly captures Scotland's folklore, landscape and people. Bruch's use of traditional Scottish tunes, including those of Robert Burns the 'People's Poet' of Scotland (who was, like Nicola, also born in Ayrshire), leads us to new recordings of Burns' three songs, Ae Fond Kiss, My Love is Like a Red Red Rose and of course, Auld Lang Syne. The album ends with music that has inspired both Bruch and Burns: Scottish folk music.
