Some 26 years after releasing his breakthrough recording of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons (the best-selling classical record ever), Nigel Kennedy has the Italian composer in his sights again, presenting an exciting new version of his masterpiece.
“Spiky-haired Nigel Kennedy’s 1989 recording of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons … changed the classical world forever,” says Classic FM.
Maverick and iconic British violinist Nigel Kennedy turns back the clock but adds a typical and traditional Kennedy twist as he performs an acoustic version of his ground breaking Four Seasons.
Titled The New Four Seasons, Nigel will take the audience on a journey through the seasons with extraordinary flair, taking on new interpretations of the music whilst keeping Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at its root.
“virtuosity intact, the sound compelling, the effect totally disarming.” – The Guardian, Jan 2016
