WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
British 'rebel' violinist famous for his wild hair, wilder style and his interpretations of Vivaldi's music in particular.
World-famous violinist, Nigel Kennedy, presents a typically maverick musical programme celebrating the music of Bach as well as other brilliant composers that have influenced him. The concert begins with Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin, after which he is joined by an acoustic guitarist, a snare drum and a double bass to perform Kennedy's own arrangements of the music of the legendary Fats Waller, Brubeck, as well as other composers and classical cross over pieces such as Monti's Czardas, Danny Boy and more. A hugely entertaining and enjoyable evening where skill and passion come together for an electrifying evening of music.
