Extractions: For the past 25 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 virtuosic technique, unique talent and popular appeal have brought fresh perspectives to both the classical and contemporary repertoire. Following a five-year sabbatical, in April 1997, Kennedy made a triumphant return to the international concert platform. Even though the performance took place during the run-up to the British General Election, news of Kennedys reappearance occupied the front pages of national newspapers. The Times critic declared, "Only one British violinist in my lifetime has produced anything as bold and exhilarating as that. It is his playing, though, that most reveals Kennedy's new maturity. No other violinist on earth could manage the astonishing stylistic transition presented." The Daily Telegraph stated, "Here was a reminder that Kennedy is a violinist in a million." Since then, Kennedy has been in constant demand on the international circuit, touring major venues in countries throughout the world, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. In 1998, he made a highly acclaimed North American tour, his first for over five years and, since then, he has returned to the USA many times.

NIGEL KENNEDY ON JIMI HENDRIX Interview between this artist and the UK magazine UniVibes focuses on kennedy's contribution to the Hendrix tribute album. violinist nigel kennedy contributed 'Fire' to the 'Stone Free' Jimi Hendrix tribute album (Reprise, 1993) and has also http://www.djnoble.demon.co.uk/ints/NIGELKE.NN0.html
Extractions: Douglas J Noble and Nigel Kennedy, London, 10 January 1995. Violinist Nigel Kennedy contributed 'Fire' to the 'Stone Free' Jimi Hendrix tribute album (Reprise, 1993) and has also played several Jimi Hendrix songs in live performances. At the time of this interview Nigel was planning an album consisting of Hendrix covers and original material but the subsequent album release, 'Metamorphosis' (1996) consisted of solely original material penned by Nigel. UniVibes: How did you come to be asked to contribute to the 'Stone Free' album? Nigel Kennedy: I'm not really sure! I think it was 'cause my manager looks after Chrissie Hynde who had been contributing 'Bold As Love' and I'd been talking with Alan Douglas... They asked my manager if I'd be into having a go. I'd been playing quite a lot of Jimi's stuff live with a view to maybe recording quite a lot of it once it had developed enough in front of people to see where it was going, and so it just seemed the right time to maybe have a go at 'Fire'. 'Fire' is almost an instrumental song really so it was a fair one to have a go at. I think it was quite an interesting album with all the different stars on there.

The repertoire performed on the tour will include music from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Bach, Massenet and the Monti Czardas. Nigel Kennedy is the record industry's best-selling UK classical instrumentalist and his album of Vivaldi's Four Seasons remains the most popular recording ever of a classical work.

Extractions: Jean Luc-Ponty has possibly gained acceptance as the first virtuoso electric violinist. His recordings and collaborations cover many types of music. From the few recordings I have heard he uses more of the potential of an electric violin than other violinists in this field - sometimes making quite extensive use of "effects". His notes sparkle with accuracy and he has the light agility important when playing the electric violin. His performances have attracted boisterous crowds and he regularly plays acoustic, electric (Violectra) and electroacoustic violin (Kennedy's own red 'electric-stradivarius'). His repertoire has covered performances and recordings in venues from small converted stables to massive out-door events. From a young age he was regularly seen playing large classical concertos; chamber concerts; jazz standards, his own compositions and improvisations with many varied groups. The press regularly refers to Kennedy as some sort of punk violinist. This is fuelled by Kennedy's sometimes uncompromising appearance on stage and in public. Mainly however it is the way in which he presents the violin that has created a stir across the world. More recently he released his second recording of the Elgar Violin Concerto (Simon Rattle conducting) and is reported to be trying to drop the "Nige" that he is commonly called in public, preferring the more formal "Kennedy"
Nigel Kennedy nigel kennedy. People can say I'ma classical violinist if they want to but I'vealways viewed myself as a musician who plays music and not just a certain part http://www.angelfire.com/ct2/mehmet/nigel.html
Extractions: Nigel Kennedy "People can say I'm a classical violinist if they want to but I've always viewed myself as a musician who plays music and not just a certain part of it". For nearly twenty years, Kennedy has been acknowledged as one of the world's leading violin virtuosos whose unique talent has brought fresh perspectives and a quantum energy to both the classical and contemporary repertoire. Kennedy studied originally at the Sir Yehudi Menuhin School in England before moving on to the internationally renowned Juilliard School of Music in New York to study under Dorothy DeLay while his London concert debut came playing the Mendelssohn Violin concerto with The Philharmonia under Riccardo Muti at the Royal Festival Hall. Following a lengthy sabbatical, Kennedy dislodged the UK General Election from national newspaper front pages on his return to the international concert platform when he performed in London during April '97; The Times reviewer stating, "Only one British violinist in my lifetime has produced anything as bold and exhilarating as that." It is his playing, though, that most reveals Kennedy's new maturity. No other violinist on earth could manage the astonishing stylistic transition presented. March 1998 Home
