Nigel Kennedy: Bach Meets Gershwin
- 14. 3. 2018
Nigel Kennedy is the bestselling violinist of all time. He is brilliant while performing a classical piece, as well as some jazz or rock one. On the stage, he has sometimes taken off his jacket…in order to establish closer relationship with his audience and made for them his music more approachable.
Nigel became famous thanks to his interpretation of Jimi Hendrix or The Doors. He has cooperated with rock and pop icons such as Sir Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Robert Plant, The Who, Led Zeppelin and others.
Many times, he was also nominated for the Grammy Award. His last album My World nestled at the top chart of classical music in the United Kingdom.
For his Czech fans, Nigel has prepared a concert "Bach Meets Gershwin" – he and five another musicians are going to perform classical pieces and finish this concert with the contemporary ones.
