Violinist Nicola Benedetti

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Twenty-five-year-old violinist Nicola Benedetti discusses her latest album, “The Silver Violin.” It features the Korngold Violin Concerto as its centerpiece and celebrates violin music from great film scores, and it was the first solo instrumental album in decades to top the U.K.’s classical charts and enter the Top 30 pop charts.

I salute Ms. Benedetti for calling attention to Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who wrote two of my favorite film scores, "Captain Blood" (rousing!) and "Between Two Worlds" (introspective).

PS -- Warner Bros. had one helluva great music department, didn't it?
