Nigel Kennedy’s Four Elements with the Orchestra of Life
Following the staggering success of his UK performances of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in 2010, including a stunning, sold out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Nigel Kennedy has announced that he will be returning to the UK this September for an extensive tour of the UK, again performing his exhilarating and unique take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons as well as his own brand new composition, the Four Elements.
This marks the world premiere of the Four Elements. Composed for the Orchestra of Life and voices, the Four Elements is a highly descriptive composition, inspired by the elements of earth, water, air and fire, which takes the listener on a journey of exhilaration, contemplation and celebration.
For over twenty-five 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 virtuoso technique, unique talent and mass appeal have brought fresh perspectives to both the classical and contemporary repertoire.
