Nicola Benedetti portrait

The Edinburgh International Festival is gearing up for this year's festival by releasing a series of artist portraits on YouTube. Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti will be performing Glazunov's Violin Concerto with Vasily Petrenko and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra at the Usher Hall on 16 August 2015, in a programme which also includes music by the Norwegian composer Geirr Tveitt (1908-1981) and Sibelius's Symphony no. 1 (further information from the festival website).

To complement this, they have issued a Festival Portrait in which Nicola Benedetti talks about her vulnerabilities on stage stage, and artists embracing idiosyncrasy on stage. It lasts 5 minutes, and there is no padding, just Nicola Benedetti talking directly to camera in a rather endearingly candid portrait. You can see it after the break.
