Summary

Summary

Originally released in 1989, violinist Nigel Kennedy's modern take on Vivaldi's Four Seasons was instrumental in the development of the now hugely popular classical crossover scene. Recorded with the English Chamber Orchestra, the eccentric musician famous for his rather unorthodox punk rock image, made the genre accessible to the masses, bringing the 400-year-old pieces of music to life with his unique and vigorous playing style. One of the biggest-selling classical albums ever, Kennedy's tenth release is one of over 150 interpretations of the 12 concertos. ~ Jon O'Brien
