Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti has revealed she has been placed on a 10pm practicing curfew in her apartment – following complaints from a neighbour.
Nicola, who shares the West London flat with her boyfriend, German cellist Leonard Elschenbroich, has told the UK’s Daily Mail that the couple’s free daily performances have been allegedly interfering with their downstairs neighbours’ sleep schedule.
“Our flat is not entirely soundproof so we do have to stop … it’s only the gentleman below who insists we stop by 10pm – which we almost always respect,” Nicola has said.
The two sides will remain on friendly terms, she has indicated.
“He’s a lovely guy … I think if it was in your downtime, you might protest, too… ” she has added.
