In Classical Collection this week, Sarah's Artist of the Week is the best-selling classical violinist of all time, Nigel Kennedy, whose long and varied career, along with his distinctive public persona, has never failed to spark widespread interest. Following Kennedy's performance of Bach's works at the BBC Proms on the 6th August, Sarah Walker delves into Kennedy's discography, which today includes an arrangement of Gershwin's Piano Prelude No 1 in B flat for violin and orchestra. Plus, Sarah plays Kennedy's recordings of Bach's Violin Concerto in E and Vivaldi's Op 3 Violin Concerto in A.
