The Greene Space – New York City
Wynton Marsalis with award-winning Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti appearing together in Classical Up Close at New York Public Radio’s Greene Space.
The hour-long program, which will be hosted by WQXR‘s new creative director Clemency Burton-Hill, gave the audience intimate insight into the collaborative process, when the two musicians discuss the 2015 violin concerto that Wynton Marsalis wrote for Benedetti, as well as their continuing work together on new artistic and educational projects.
In addition, Benedetti performed, accompanied by pianist Alexei Grynyuk.
