Nigel Kennedy

Video Find of the Day

I first noticed Nigel Kennedy doing Vivaldi's Four Seasons. He's been around far longer than I've been aware. Turns out he was getting attention as a ten year old child prodigy back in the 60s. I paid more attention to Jimi Hendrix back then. Perhaps so did Nigel Kennedy.

Here he's doing Vittorio Monti's Czardas. Like the Purple Haze it wanders away from the original and comes back again.
