Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

Nigel Kennedy
Palestine Strings
Members of the Orchestra of Life

Following his two Proms appearances in 2008 and his more recent one in 2011 to play solo Bach, Nigel Kennedy returned this year with Vivaldi's 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.
