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.

From beginnings as Menuhin’s most famous protégé, his multi-award-winning discography is extensive, with his first landmark recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons earning a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the best-selling classical work of all time.

His passion for jazz resulted in the album Blue Note Sessions, and then the critically acclaimed Echo Klassik Award winning Polish Spirit – recorded when Kennedy was the Artistic Director of the Polish Chamber Orchestra. He then went on to record and tour with his own ensembles – The Nigel Kennedy Quintet and the Orchestra of Life – composing new repertoire, uniquely inspired by his incredibly varied and genre-crossing background.

Sony Classical released Kennedy’s new personal take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in 2015, and also in late 2015 he toured a project of music inspired by the great Jimi Hendrix. 

He is available for performances at corporate and private events with a number of different set ups from solo Bach through to the full Four Seasons with orchestra with many different creative Jazz or even Hendrix inspired possibilities in between.
