Violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti beautifully interprets music from the silver screen with her new album The Silver Violin, to be released on Decca in the U.S. on February 19, 2013. Named Female Artist of the Year 2012 by The Classical Brits, the stunning Benedetti is a rising star internationally. Upon its release in the UK in the fall of 2012, The Silver Violin vaulted immediately into the top of the pop charts, outselling pop star Justin Bieber and performing better than any other classical album in that country in 20 years. The success has been critical as well as commercial, with notices from the likes ofThe Observer who raved, "The lush, romantic sound of Hollywood suits her well," while The Times praised her "gleaming high register." Appealing to music lovers of all genres, Benedetti also recently shared the stage with A-list superstars including Andrea Bocelli and Rod Stewart among others.
