EXCLUSIVE: Violinist Nigel Kennedy to play Ipswich Regent

VIRTUOSO violinist Nigel Kennedy is coming to the Ipswich Regent next year, we can exclusively reveal.

He will perform his new interpretation of Vivaldi’s Fours Seasons as well as his new work, the Four Elements.

The Aston Villa supporter was originally scheduled to tour the UK this September.

However, recording commitments following his new exclusive contract with Sony has seen it pushed back to January.

For more than a quarter of a century his technique and talent, as well as his humour and rock star attitude, have seen him become one of the most successful classical performers of his time.

It was his recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons which won him a new army of fans, reaching the top five of the UK pop charts and earning him a place in the Guinness Book of Records as one of the biggest selling classical records of all time.

Joining him at the Regent on Tuesday, January 10, will be the Orchestra of Life and the Nigel Kennedy Band.
