Kennedy plays Bach, with the Berlin Philharmonic.
Nice. I've seen Nigel Kennedy in concert twice, and he is one dynamic musician! The first time I saw him, the program was mainly Elgar, but when he came back for his final encore, the orchestra did not touch their instuments as he went into about 15 minutes of playing the blues, breaking a string and then just shifting keys without missing a beat to continue! Even the Vancouver Symphony rose for the deserved standing ovation.
I don't usually buy music videos, but one of the very few that I own is Kennedy at Carcassonne, which was a great concert with a magnificent backdrop. We were there just 2 weeks later, and wished that we could have gone earlier for what turned out to be a magical evening.
Anyway, as you can see I'm a fan.
