Nicola Benedetti lashes out at the music business

Speaking about Covid responses on Scala Radio, the enterprising Socttis violinist said:

‘I just don’t believe that the route we’ve taken is the best we could have done. I think incompetency, vested interests in the wrong areas, I think just a lack of care, a lack of leadership, disorganisation, just bad management I think has gone on left, right and centre and it’s costing people their livelihoods.’

She went on to say: ‘Our prospects do not look good any time soon. We can’t see a clear end in sight that provides any sort of working business model. It’s not just musicians, it’s everybody involved in that ecosystem.’
