Since winning the BBC’s Young Musician title in 2004, Nicola Benedetti has forged a dazzling international career, not only as a concert soloist and chamber musician, but also for music education projects run through her Benedetti Foundation. In 2022 she became the first Scot and the first woman to be appointed Director of the Edinburgh International Festival.

The English Concert was founded in 1972 by harpsichordist Trevor Pinnock and is recognised as one of the world’s leading period-instrument orchestras.
