At the age of seven, Nigel Kennedy received the very first scholarship, awarded by the Yehudi Menuhin School, before becoming a student of Dorothy DeLay at the Juilliard School of Music in New York at the age of 16. Kennedy repeatedly received lessons in jazz improvisation from the master of jazz violin, Stéphane Grappelli. For more than 20 years, Kennedy has been regarded as one of the world's leading violin virtuosos. With more than three million copies sold worldwide, his sensational recording of Vivaldi's “Four Seasons” is the best-selling classical album of all time and has entered the Guinness Book of Records.

The versatile artist sees himself as
Border crossers between different styles of music. His unique musical talent and his sparkling energy have given new impetus to both the classical and the contemporary repertoire
awarded and made an important contribution to the elimination of the separation between light and serious music.

Nigel Kennedy can only be booked for private events.
