RSS
20 November 2013

Nigel Kennedy presents: Bach + Fats Waller at Hall for Cornwall, Truro. Time 7.30pm. Tickets £30 - £39.

World-famous violinist, Nigel Kennedy, presents a typically maverick musical programme celebrating the music of Bach and Fats Waller.

 

The concert begins with Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin, after which he is joined by an acoustic guitarist, a snare drum and a double bass to perform Kennedy's own arrangements of the music of the legendary Fats Waller as well as classical cross over pieces.

A hugely entertaining and enjoyable evening where skill and passion come together for an electrifying evening of music.

[The] 'unlikely combination of music by JS Bach, Fats Waller (and a few others thrown in for good measure) showcases his ability to play music of all styles, and he's mesmerisingly good - only someone as skilled as him could hold a stage by himself and keep the audience on the edge of their seats' (Nottingham Review)

'Playing Bach and Fats Waller on one show is a dream for me ­ two amazing keyboard players, both masters of harmony and melody.' Nigel Kennedy.

Date: 20 November 2013, 7.30pm.

Tickets: £30 - £39. Group and concession rates available.
