Description

Fifteen years after recording the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the late great Klaus Tennstedt (1992), Nigel Kennedy has recorded a new version with the Polish Chamber Orchestra, directing the ensemble from the violin. The coupling is Kennedy’s first ever recording of a Mozart violin concerto: No 4, K218.

Kennedy has not performed Mozart for more than twenty-five years. For the Mozart Concerto in D Major, K218, Kennedy has incorporated jazz and other non-classical styles in radical cadenzas that keep the composer’s material in mind yet give the work a contemporary edge.

The CD includes Kennedy’s own arrangement of Creepin in, by the hard bop legend Horace Silver. The young doublebass prodigy Michal Baranski joins Kennedy in this encore.
