Andrea Bocelli with very special guest Nicola Benedetti

Andrea Bocelli, the defining tenor of our era, live for the very first time in the Highlands of Scotland. Scotland’s own classical superstar Nicola Benedetti will appear as very special guest on the show.

Speaking about his forthcoming concert in the capital city of the Scottish Highlands Andrea Boccelli said:

“It will be more than a concert: it will represent a personal joy for me, an important debut of my mature career. it will give me the huge privilege to take my voice to one of the most fascinating places on earth, full of history, beauty, and Poetry.

After these long and complex three years that have shaken all of humanity, going back to the UK will be incredibly emotional: the returning sunshine after the storm. As in the words of the popular ballad, I already feel like “My Heart’s in the Highlands”!”

 

Musically gifted from birth, Andrea Bocelli is one of the most celebrated singers in modern history, performing at major international events including the Olympic Games and the World Cup, as well as his own sell-out arena shows around the world. He has a Golden Globe, seven Classical BRITs and seven World Music Awards under his belt, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His previous album, Si, reached No.1 on both the US and UK charts.

With a decorated career spanning more than a quarter of a century, having amassed millions of fans around the world with his emotive and instantly recognisable voice, Bocelli has collaborated with a host of A-list stars including Luciano Pavarotti, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Céline Dion, Tony Bennett, Alison Krauss and many more.

Ultimately, Bocelli understands that all music is good for the soul in a way that taps into the most subtle nuances of humanity, irrespective of individual belief: “Good music brings with it a powerful message of peace and fellowship, teaching us about beauty, and helping us to open our hearts and minds.”

While he may have the popular touch, Bocelli retains critical respect. Gramophone, the bible of classical music identifies Andrea Bocelli as "one of the most natural, graceful and relaxed tenors of today" praising his "powerful tenor of distinctive timbre", his "elegant tones", his "fine unwavering definition", his "remarkable breath of phrase", delivered "beautifully sustained" and "without a suspicion of strain". Respected US classical critic Richard Dyer states simply; "Bocelli is The Real Deal".

 

Nicola Benedetti said, ‘I’m hugely excited to be playing at the Caledonian Stadium, Inverness for a great crowd in my home country. Thank you so much to Andrea Bocelli for this invitation. I can’t wait.’

Born in Ayrshire, Scotland, Nicola Benedetti is one of the most sought-after violinists of her generation. Her ability to captivate audiences and her wide appeal as an advocate for classical music has made her one of the most influential artists of today.

In 2021-2022, Nicola opens the Barbican Centre’s season and amongst others, collaborates with the London Symphony Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and Cincinnati Symphony. Other season highlights include engagements with LA Philharmonic, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, play-directing with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and tours to Spain with the Philharmonia Orchestra and Asia with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

In April 2021 Nicola gave the world premiere of Mark Simpson’s Violin Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda – receiving critically acclaimed reviews. Winner of the GRAMMY Award for Best Classical Instrumental Solo in 2020, as well as Best Female Artist at both 2012 and 2013 Classical BRIT Awards, Nicola records exclusively for Decca (Universal Music). Her latest recordings of Vivaldi Concerti and Elgar’s Violin Concerto entered at number one in the UK’s Official Classical Album Chart. Other recent recordings include her GRAMMY award-winning album written especially for her by jazz musician Wynton Marsalis: Violin Concerto in D and Fiddle Dance Suite for Solo Violin.

Nicola was appointed a CBE in 2019, awarded the Queen’s Medal for Music (2017), and an MBE in 2013. In addition, Nicola holds the positions of Vice President (National Children’s Orchestras), Big Sister (Sistema Scotland), Patron (National Youth Orchestras of Scotland’s Junior Orchestra, Music in Secondary Schools Trust and Junior Conservatoire at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland). In January 2020, Nicola launched The Benedetti Foundation, delivering sessions providing tutorials and inspirational workshops.
