Nicola Benedetti, Winchester, Reading Europe: Russia

Nicola Benedetti has co-written a new cadenza for Beethoven's Violin Concerto.

Jason Solomons reviews Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, which stars Helen Mirren in the first horror movie of her 50 year career and is set in the real life house that the Winchester gun heiress built to keep ghosts at bay. As part of Reading Europe Radio 4 is dramatising 'The Bride and Groom' , a novel by the award-winning Russian author Alisa Ganieva.
