Product Description

The first disc focuses on classical music, featuring Kennedy’s iconic recordings of the best-loved violin repertoire: movements from the great concerti including Bruch and Beethoven; stand-alone works such as Zigeunerweisen and Lark Ascending; and from his landmark recording of Vivaldi: Four Seasons.

Kennedy’s 1989 release of the baroque masterpiece, named the best-selling classical recording of all time by the Guinness Book of World Records, topped the UK Classical Charts for over a year, reached #3 on the UK Pop Album chart and has sold more than two-million copies world wide. At one point, Nigel was selling more records a week than the combined total of the other 19 records in the UK Classical Sales Chart.

The second disc features tracks from his award-winning and critically acclaimed jazz and pop recordings: standards from his Blue Note Sessions album, performances of his own pop and fusion compositions with the Nigel Kennedy Quintet and with Polish klezmer trio Kroke, as well as tracks from his most recent EMI Classics release Sssh!, including his collaboration with Culture Club singer Boy George.

Nigel Kennedy, one of the world’s best-known and best-selling classical artists, refuses to play by any one set of rules. In the past decade he has recorded Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Mlynarsky and Karlowicz, laid his personal instrumental stamp on the songs of Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and Kate Bush, performed the violin intro to Baba O’Riley on stage with The Who, performed at The Proms with Jeff Beck, explored klezmer music with Polish band Kroke, dug deep into the roots of modern jazz on The Blue Note Sessions, and album recorded with Ron Carter and Jack DeJohnette and most recently collaborated with old mate and North London neighbour, Boy George on Nick Drake’s classic “River Man” for his 2010 release Shhh!

Loved the classical disc but not the Jazz expected my preference to be the other way round. somehow the jazz wasn't jazzy enough was hoping for more of the fabulous Kennedy improvisation. A CD of improvisation would be fantastic.

This CD is wonderful. I have played it over and over again.
Especially the track 'Lark Assending'.
Nigel Kennedy is a great musician. We watched him on 'The Last Night at the Proms'. He is so entertaining, bringing classical music to a younger audience. Wonderful to watch. I was hoping a DVD of the proms would be
available.

Love the classical CD, and some of the jazz too, which surprises me. He is one hell of a violin player. Been to see him live since buying this - fantastic.
