Nigel Kennedy is a violinist and violist.
A pupil at the Yehudi Menuhin School under Yehudi Menuhin himself, Kennedy later studied at the Juilliard School in New York under Dorothy DeLay.
Kennedy has played a part in making classical music popular, particularly among young people. He has also performed and recorded most of the major violin concerti.
Aged 16, Stéphane Grappelli invited the prodigy to appear alongside him at New York's Carnegie Hall. He made his recording debut in 1984 with the Elgar Violin Concerto, but most know Kennedy through his interpretation of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" recorded in 1989, sold over 2 million copies and earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the then best-selling classical work of all time. The album remained top of the UK classical charts for over a year with sales equivalent to one copy sold every 30 seconds of every day.
