Classical superstar Nigel Kennedy returns with a critically acclaimed programme of the music of George Gershwin, hailed by The Guardian as “rip-roaring and exquisitely tender”, spirited and playful gypsy jazz arrangements inspired by his friendship with the legendary violinist, Stéphane Grappelli, reminiscent of jamming together as a teenager during his time at the Menuhin School.
