Acclaimed as one of the leading violinists of her generation, Nicola Benedetti turns the spotlight on Hollywood in this collection of original violin music written for the silver screen. The centerpiece is Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Violin Concerto – a work in which the émigré Austrian composer used themes from some of his most famous movie scores.
