‘The Best-Selling Violinist of Our Time’

We proudly present a truly unique concert with the virtuoso violinist Nigel Kennedy as he performs a special concert, Kennedy Meets Gershwin Meets Bach.

You can expect such timeless standards as Summertime, Rhapsody In (Claret &) Blue, They Can’t Take That Away From Me and Porgy and Bess have been re-imagined with Kennedy’s inimitable style and verve.

The result is Kennedy Meets Gershwin, an assured and joyful re-imagination of Gershwin’s timeless compositions, given new life by the charming and soaring interpretations of classical music’s most unique and prodigious talent.

A love of jazz has featured prominently in Nigel Kennedy’s career. Classical music’s most successful performer of all-time grew up listening to his stepfather’s jazz records, picking out Fats Waller tunes on the piano and now Kennedy is making a rip-roaring foray into the songbook of iconoclastic American composer Gershwin with a mesmerisingly musical collection.
