BBC Proms 2013: Prom 34: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons

Friday 9 August

9.15pm-11.45pm

BBC RADIO 3

Nigel Kennedy, Palestine Strings and Members of the Orchestra of Life are live at the BBC Proms from the Royal Albert Hall, London, with Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

Following his two Proms appearances in 2008 and his more recent one in 2011 to play solo Bach, Nigel Kennedy returns with Vivaldi's The Four Seasons - with the Palestine Strings from the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music as well as members of his own Orchestra of Life.

Revisiting a work he recorded to great acclaim nearly 25 years ago, Kennedy brings fresh insights to these visionary concertos, including the addition of his own improvised links between them.
