Nigel Kennedy and the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra celebrate one of the greatest composers of all time with a programme of concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Only three of Bach’s many violin concertos survive, and tonight we hear them all. Virtuoso violinist Nigel Kennedy takes centre stage in the two dazzling concertos for solo violin, before two OPO soloists join – first Anna-Liisa Bezrodny for the Concerto for Two Violins, one of Bach’s most celebrated works, then Nicholas Daniel for the reconstructed Concerto for Violin and Oboe.
A musical maverick and one of the world’s leading violinists, Nigel Kennedy’s ‘sincere enthusiasm and sense of fun’ (Limelight) is palpable in every performance he gives. Together with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, he invites us to share in the ‘incomparable amount of spiritual enjoyment to be gained from Bach’s music’.
This performance will finish at approximately 9.30pm, including a 20-minute interval
