Violinist Nicola Benedetti Cancels Performances Due to Injury


Violinist Nicola Benedetti was due to perform on June 9, 15, and 18, 2022, at the 73rd Aldeburgh Festival in Suffolk, England. 

According to the BBC, violinist Christian Tetzlaff stepped in for Benedetti for the June 9 performance with the Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective at Snape Maltings Concert Hall. Upcoming, Elena Urioste will perform the same program in Benedetti’s place on June 15 and 18 at Blythburgh Church.

“So heartbroken not to be playing in Aldeburgh tonight,” Benedetti recently posted on her Instagram page

Nonetheless, the violinist is hoping to return to the stage with her Benedetti Baroque Orchestra — making its Aldeburgh Festival debut — performing violin concertos by Vivaldi, Corelli, and Geminiani on June 26.

“We are very much hoping that Nicola will be able to join us for the final concert of the Festival…and we wish Nicola a speedy recovery,” the event’s organizers wrote on their website.

Born in Scotland and of Italian heritage, Benedetti began violin lessons at age four and attended the Yehudi Menuhin School, studying with Lord Menuhin and Natasha Boyarskaya. 

Since then, and especially after winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year award in 2004 at age 16, she has toured internationally with many of the world’s top orchestras and artists. In 2017, she was the youngest ever recipient of the Queen’s Medal for Music and has received nine honorary degrees.
