Nicola Benedetti & Friends Residency at LSO St Luke's in March

BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts
1, 8, 15 & 22 March
All to be broadcast on BBC Radio 3

International violinist Nicola Benedetti curates a series of four concerts in which she features as both soloist and chamber musician, performing alongside some of her closest musical colleagues.

Nicola Benedetti is joined by Alexei Grynyuk (piano), Leonard Elschenbroich (cello), Alexander Sitkovetsky (violin) and Maxim Rysanov (viola) across four concerts featuring music by Bach, Ravel, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Shostakovich and Ysaÿe. Each concert will be recorded for later broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

2011/12 is the most ambitious BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert season at LSO St Luke’s to date. During September, October and November, over 12 recitals six world-ranking pianists performed a complete cycle of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas, which was received to outstanding acclaim. In February 2012, Britain’s leading chamber ensemble, the Nash Ensemble, is in residence for a series focusing on some of the great chamber works of Brahms, and in May 2012, pianist Cédric Tiberghien, cellist Pieter Wispelwey, violinist Isabelle Faust and harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani perform solo recitals of music by JS Bach.
