Following his performance of the New Four Seasons at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in 2017, Nigel Kennedy is back with a unique programme combining European tradition and American modernity. This larger-than-life performer conveys his love of music to the audience with a commitment and expressivity which are the hallmark of his natural authenticity. Accompanied on this occasion by the Orchestra of life and some soloists, he deploys his technical prowess and sensitivity to convince us of the need to share classical music with a wider audience. He will offer the Premiere of his latest composition, The Magician of Lublin, inspired by Issac Bashevis Singer's eponymous novel.
