Nigel Kennedy

 

BACH Plus!

2013 has been a vintage year for violin virtuoso, Nigel Kennedy. A sell-out tour was met with rave reviews. The Birmingham Mail said it was “Kennedy at his best”. The Times announced he was on “scintillating form”. The Guardian praised his “exquisite mix of grace and favour”, with the Independent prounouncing that the Last Night Of The Proms had been the best in years “thanks to a resplendent performance ….by the evergreen Nigel Kennedy”.

2014 now sees Kennedy present a typically maverick musical programme celebrating the music of Bach as well as other brilliant composers that have influenced him

The concert takes the listener on a journey which begins with Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin, after which Kennedy is joined by an acoustic guitarist, a snare drum and a double bass to perform his own arrangements of some of his favourite music. The evening includes works by the violinist himself, including Melody in the Wind, which featured on the Last Night of the Proms.

As the best-selling violinist of all time, whose technical brilliance has been admired in an international career spanning three decades, Nigel Kennedy is acknowledged as one of the world's leading violinists. In addition to his musical brilliance, he is a generous performer, connecting with audiences in a way seldom experienced in traditional classical music venues.

Earlier this year Kennedy released his brand new album Recital (Sony Classical), a tribute to the two most influential musical figures in his life, Yehudi Menuhin and Stéphane Grappelli. A hugely entertaining and enjoyable evening where skill and passion come together for an electrifying evening of music.
