Rye Jazz & Blues Festival are delighted to confirm the best selling classical violinist of all time, Nigel Kennedy will be performing Bach meets Kennedy meets Gershwin at the iconic De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Saturday 25th May.
Kennedy will reinterpret the work of George Gershwin as well as performing pieces by JS Bach, and his own compositions selected from his illustrious career which is unparalleled in modern British classical music.
For the last 30 years, since being discovered by the great Yehudi Menuhin, Kennedy remains a unique performer, one of the greatest violinists of his generation and the best selling violinist in the history of music. His recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons alone has sold over 3 million copies.
He has covered a diverse variety of musicians ranging from classical composers to Jimi Hendrix and has collaborated with many music legends including Sir Paul McCartney, Robert Plant and The Who as well as performing with some of the worlds leading orchestras.
Kennedy is adored by his fans not only for his original style and body of work but also for his political views and his live, often unconventional and eccentric appearances. The performance of Bach meets Kennedy meets Gershwin will demonstrate his tour de force, establishing a dialogue between Bach and Gershwin, a contemporary jazz classic.
