Nigel Kennedy - Bach meets Kennedy meets Gershwin

See Nigel Kennedy, the bestselling classical violinist of all time, reinterpret the work of George Gershwin in a special Royal Festival Hall show.

Kennedy also performs pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, and his own compositions from throughout his illustrious career that is unparalleled in modern British classical music.

Kennedy’s precocious technique first came to mainstream prominence with his interpretation of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, which is now on of the best-selling classical recordings of all time, remaining at the top of the UK Classical Albums Chart for over a year.

An artist who is unafraid to experiment, Kennedy has since traversed several different projects including reinterpreting the works of Jimi Hendrix.

Having brought a fresh perspective to classical music by his merging of the traditional with the contemporary, Kennedy has sold out the most prestigious of venues worldwide several times over, and now brings his trademark effervescent live performance to Royal Festival Hall.
