It has been a whirlwind year for Nigel Kennedy, seeing him perform huge sell-out shows in London and Manchester, as well as headlining the BBC’s Biggest Weekend events in Coventry and Perth.
Now, the multi-million selling virtuoso violinist has announced a new performance at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on 18th October 2018 where he will perform pieces by Bach, Gershwin, as well as his own self-penned pieces.
A homecoming of sorts for Kennedy, whose link to Birmingham is much celebrated, he will perform his own recent work, The Magician of Lublin.
Inspired by the book of the same title by Isaac B. Singer, who so skilfully evoked life in the shtetls of old Poland, Kennedy’s musical interpretation of The Magician of Lublin is equally as vibrant and colourful.
In addition, Kennedy will perform Fugue from Sonata No. 1 by J.S.Bach, and a selection of pieces from the Songbook of George Gershwin including Summertime, How Long Has This Been Going On, Rhapsody In Claret and Blue and Lady Be Good.
