Not only a highlight for classical music fans, but an artistic experience of a very special kind awaits you at a performance by Nigel Kennedy.
Nigel Kennedy – a classical genius and universal musician
Classical meets jazz, violin meets punk hairstyle – this concept made the violinist famous and popular. In doing so, he combines the musical finesse of a top violinist with the self-confident appearance of a rock star and in this way inspires not only proven Mozart connoisseurs. With his artistry, he also makes violin music accessible to a wider audience.
His unusual talent is as impressive as his career as an artist. Nigel Kennedy was allowed to study at the famous Yehudi Menuhin School. His further career included a classical study of his instrument at the age of 16 as well as learning jazz improvisation with the famous violinist Stèphane Grappeli. Thanks to this well-founded and special training, Nigel Kennedy is still able to fill huge concert halls and perform with renowned orchestras.
Already in the 1980s he was accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. But to this day he also appreciates the intimacy of performing with chamber orchestras and smaller ensembles, which is why you can enjoy the artist in a wide variety of locations.
His repertoire is as diverse as it is impressive. His interpretation of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” is the most famous and best-selling classical music CD of all time. With over 3 million albums sold, Nigel Kennedy has even made it into the Guinness Book of Records.
But not only these classics are on his program. He also has a lot to offer rock and pop fans. For example, he regularly plays Jimi Hendrix – a rock star who is particularly close to his musical heart. Since he sees himself as a border crosser between musical styles, jazz fans also get their money’s worth when Nigel Kennedy’s songs blend music by Johann Sebastian Bach with that of Miles Davis into a coherent whole.
Nigel Kennedy has already received numerous awards for this courageous and unusual approach. He has already received the Bambi once and the ECHO Klassik several times for his work. But not only that – he also won the ECHO POP with his virtuoso playing.
However, he does not only use his skills for pure entertainment. Because international understanding and peace are also close to his heart. After the Kosovo war, he was the first Western artist to play in Belgrade. Here he created a memorable evening for all guests by uniting Bach and Bartòk.
But also his own creations are not to be disregarded. Nigel Kennedy’s songs are experimental and contemporary and just because of that definitely worth listening to.
