CONCERT REVIEW: Nigel Kennedy, Symphony Hall, Sunday 21st September 2008


Congratulations to Nigel Kennedy and his quartet of Polish musicians on their superb concert performance at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham on Sunday 21st of September2008. Nigel and his quartet played selections mostly from “A Very Nice Album” their new double album, to a very appreciative audience. My particular favourite of the evening were “Hills Of Saturn” and the latin tinged “Where All Paths Meet”. Nigel’s mastery of his Violectra electric violin is complete, using a battery of pedals and processors to great effect, sometimes subtle, sometimes more extreme but always with Nigel in control. He has that rare ability to integrate devices with his playing, making them a natural extension of his instrument. The night passed all too quickly, Nigel and his fellow musicians seemed reluctant to leave and rewarded us with a blistering “Third Stone From The Sun” and “Sudel” (from “The Blue Note Sessions”) for encores.
