Nicola BenedettiNicola Benedetti leads all other nominees at this years Classical Brits Awards, with nominations for Instrumentalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Young British Classical Performer. But is the young Scottish violinist for real, or is she just the latest  in a series of over-hyped classical music sensations. David Weininger of the Boston Globe talked to Benedetti recently, and in this interview he found her to be a “serious, down-to-earth musician”.

Reviewing her Boston recital, The Globe’s Jeremy Eichler found her performance did not quite live up to the fanfare, perhaps because of nerves or perhaps because she just needs more time to grow and mature.
