Nigel Kennedy at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus


Nigel Kennedy presents “Bach meets Kennedy meets Gershwin” at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus on July 17th.

Discovered by the great Yehudi Menuhin, Nigel Kennedy is one of the top violinists of his generation and the best-selling violinist in the history of music; his recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons alone sold over 3 million copies. For the last 30 years, Kennedy remains a one-of-a-kind performer. 

The artist has covered diverse musicians, ranging from classic composers to Jimi Hendrix, has collaborated with music legends (Sir Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Robert Plant and The Who), and has performed together with some of the leading orchestras in the world. Kennedy is adored by his fans for his original body of work, his political views and his live, often unconventional and eccentric appearances. 

The performance "Bach meets Kennedy meets Gershwin" will demonstrate his tour de force, establishing a dialogue between Bach (Kennedy has often performed his pieces for violin) and Gershwin, a contemporary jazz classic.
