Music to your ears

August 11, 2014

THE violinist Nicola Benedetti joins collaborators performing Brahms and Shostakovich this morning as BBC Radio 3 broadcasts a series of live Edinburgh International Festival concerts to listeners around the world.

The broadcasts are part of BBC Radio 3's annual commitment to covering the festival. In 2006 the station expanded its coverage to include three weeks of live morning concerts broadcast from Queen's Hall. Festival director Jonathan Mills said the broadcasts would allow festival lovers who are "not able to join us in Edinburgh" to enjoy the music.
