Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti performing the world premiere recording of composer and jazz legend Wynton Marsalis‘ newly-premiered Violin Concerto in D – with conductor Cristian Măcelaru and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

“We wanted this concerto to be a dialogue between two different kinds of music … and as such it has African rhythms, burlesque passages, Celtic and gospel music …” Wynton has this month told The Violin Channel.

“I love jazz music and I love the orchestra … I don’t separate music into different styles, there’s not one body of music that is greater than another … so I thought the two could come together …” he has said.

”I hope the recording speaks to those with a curiosity in crossing cultures, and in complex, colourful and uplifting music … this music affirms a belief I’ve held since childhood – that when we strip away our concepts of race, religion or culture, our DNA shows more similarity than difference,” Nicola has told The Violin Channel.
