THE Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra joins Brummie and Villa fan Nigel Kennedy in concert at Malvern Theatres next weekend, April 16 and 17.
Kennedy, fresh from his interpretations of Jimmy Hendrix returns to Vivaldi with his ‘The New Four Seasons’ and his own ‘Dedications’.
Kennedy recorded Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons back in 1989 and sold over two million copies, making history to become one of the best-selling classical albums of all time.
In 2015 Kennedy revisited The Four Seasons with a new interpretation, embracing new developments in music technology, styles and instruments.
Kennedy trained at the Menuhin School and the Juilliard School of Music and has since led trailblazing projects, which have seen him perform on electric violins, combining jazz, rock and classical idioms.
The Oxford Philharmonic has worked with Kennedy on numerous occasions in the past and in a variety of musical styles and collaborative settings.
Since Marios Papadopoulos established the Orchestra in 1998, the Oxford Philharmonic has grown steadily in stature, now attracting some of the world’s leading musicians as soloists and conductors, such as Valery Gergiev, András Schiff, Lang Lang, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Nigel Kennedy and Maxim Vengerov.
