New arrangement is for solo violin and string quartet

Today's Video of Day features acclaimed violinist and leading ambassador for classical music Nicola Benedetti in a beautiful performance of a new arrangement by the Ayoub Sisters of Ernest Bloch’s Prayer for solo violin and string quartet. Originally composed in 1924 for cello and piano, this new arrangement was commissioned by furniture makers Maker&Son, which has joined up with Benedetti to support her Benedetti Foundation and its music education work, just this week recipients of a Royal Philharmonic Society Award for its Virtual Benedetti Sessions.

The film is available to stream below, but you can also download an audio recording of it by making a donation to the Benedetti Foundation - click here to find out more.
