Fantasie

Released on 07.09.2009

Benedetti’s fourth album, Fantasie, was released on September 7, 2009. It features the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Alexei Grynyuk, Vasily Patrenko and Andrew Litton.

Fantasie is made up from a selection of well-loved violin pieces that form her fourth violin showcase. The repertoire is varied, ultimately all popular pieces and greatly different to the repertoire on her most recent studio albums. The combination of virtuosic, gipsy-influenced pieces with introspective meditations and songs represents the two aspects of violin-playing that particularly interest Benedetti.
