The Strad September 2020 issue


The Strad’s September issue features British violinist Nicola Benedetti, who speaks about launching the Benedetti Sessions, her mass education project for string players of all ages. There’s an article by Leon Bosch about performing Bach’s Cello Suites on the double bass and an introduction to the twelve instruments featured in next year’s calendar, all taken from Norway’s Dextra Musica foundation. Plus, we pay tribute to the great Ida Haendel, who died in July at the age of 96.
