Kennedy’s jazz-influenced record, released to coincide with the 120th birthday anniversary of Gershwin, showcases the remarkable skill of a violinist much loved by the classical and jazz worlds.

A love of jazz has featured prominently in Nigel Kennedy’s career. Classical music’s most successful performer of all-time grew up listening to his stepfather’s jazz records, picking out Fats Waller tunes on the piano.

Until now, that is, for Kennedy is making a rip-roaring foray into the songbook of iconoclastic American composer Gershwin with a mesmerizingly musical collection.
Kennedy said: ‘For me Gershwin’s work is epitomised by three main ingredients: the fusion of jazz and classical music, the beautiful melodic influences of Jewish culture and the unique energy of New York City.

This music fits my nature, skill set and experiences so well!’
“Rip-roaring and exquisitely tender – the classical star is a mesmerisingly musical jazz lover” The Guardian
