Benedetti will tour Scotland in March

Leading violinist Nicola Benedetti has announced a new tour of Scotland in March this year.

The Silver Violin Tour will take in Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall and Edinburgh's Usher Hall, as well as some regional venues across Scotland, including the Barrfield Theatre in Largs, Ayr Town Hall and Greenock's new Beacon Theatre.

On the tour the violinist, originally from West Kilbride, North Ayrshire, who won the BBC Young Musician of the Year at the age of 16, will perform a number of works from her latest album, The Silver Violin.

She will also perform music from movies including works by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Dmitri Shostakovich and John Williams, including the theme from Schindler's List, the Romance from The Gadfly and arrangements of arias from Korngold's romantic opera Die tote Stadt.

The performance will also include the Tchaikovsky Piano Trio with her long-term collaborators, cellist Leonard Elschenbroich and pianist Alexei Grynyuk.
