Classical Up Close: Nicola Benedetti and Wynton Marsalis Live From The Greene Space
WQXR presents an exclusive event with Nicola— whose extraordinary service to music and education has been recognized by Queen Elizabeth II — and legendary American trumpeter, composer and educationalist Wynton Marsalis, Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
After the huge success of the violin concerto Marsalis wrote for Benedetti in 2015, they have teamed up on a new artistic and educational collaboration. We’ll get insight into that process as well as a live performance by Benedetti, accompanied by pianist Alexei Grynyuk. Hosted by broadcaster and WQXR’s new Creative Director Clemency Burton-Hill.
