NIGEL KENNEDY embarks on his UK Tour tomorrow - Tues 10th January

NIGEL KENNEDY
KICKS OFF UK TOUR TOMORROW
PERFORMING BRAND NEW RADICAL INTERPRETATION OF
VIVALDI’S ‘FOUR SEASONS’
AND
HIS NEW COMPOSITION/ALBUM ‘FOUR ELEMENTS’
WITH BAND AND THE ORCHESTRA OF LIFE

Following the staggering success of his UK performances of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons last season, including a stunning, sold out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Nigel Kennedy is soon to be touring the UK in January, again performing his exhilarating and unique take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons as well as his own brand new composition, the Four Elements.

This marks the world premiere of the Four Elements. Composed for the Orchestra of Life and voices, the Four Elements is a highly descriptive composition, inspired by the elements of earth, water, air and fire, which takes the listener on a journey of exhilaration, contemplation and celebration.

For over twenty-five years, Nigel Kennedy has been acknowledged as one of the world's leading violin virtuosos and is, without doubt, one of the most important violinists Britain has ever produced. His virtuoso technique, unique talent and mass appeal have brought fresh perspectives to both the classical and contemporary repertoire. He is the best selling classical violinist of all time.

Kennedy released his first Studio album via Sony in September, his own brand new original composition ‘Four Elements’, which he will be performing in full as part of his show. 

Nigel says "I couldn’t be happier to be bringing my new orchestra back to the UK for these dates with the Four Seasons and my new work - they are brilliant young players at the top of their form. It’s great to include my band members to the Orchestra of Life. For the Four Seasons, we have also brought in Massive Attack’s percussionist, Damon Reece – I am very excited by this new approach to the Seasons!"
