Young violinist defends the ageing audiencemain
Nicola Benedetti has told CBC Radio that the pressure to produce younger audiences has gone too far.
The Scottish violinist, 29, is quoted as saying:
‘One thing is to criticise the audience for being old, as if that’s negative. I can;t believe how terrible that is and how offensive it is to categorise a group in that way and to encourage a generation gap.’
