A new video of Ernest Bloch's Prayer features a collaboration between violinist Nicola Benedetti and luxury furniture manufacturer Maker&Son

A new video features violinist Nicola Benedetti, with Yume Fujise and Charlie Westhoff (violin), Jenny Lewisohn (viola) and Ariane Zandi (cello), in a live recording of a new arrangement of Ernest Bloch's Prayer (originally for cello and piano) made at Kemps House, the home of luxury sofa manufacturer Maker&Son. The arrangement was commissioned by Alex Willcock, founder of Maker&Son.

If the collaboration between violinist and luxury furniture maker seems somewhat unlikely, you can eavesdrop on the interview with Nicola Benedetti and Alex Willcock as they talk about the serendipitous events that connected them and led to working together.

“Our hope is that we can share the experience and the emotional connection that we both have with classical music, with as many people as possible. We hope to share our passion and to offer that experience, or sense of being completely immersed in beautiful music.”

You can download the track, with a donation to benefit the Benedetti Foundation.
