BELGRADE – Charismatic violinist Nigel Kennedy is visiting Belgrade one more time to perform at the Kolarac Foundation in the city's downtown on October 9th, 2014. The British virtuoso's performance will be broken up in two parts – the classical music part and the jazz part. The classical part will consist of the E Major Prelude from the Partita No. 3 and the second, third and fourth movements (Fugue, Andante, Allegro) from the Sonata No.2 in A Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, while the second part will feature pieces by the famous jazz performer, composer and comedic entertainer from the first half of the 20th century, Fats Waller.

Appearing on Monday 16 June will be star violinist Nigel Kennedy . The Briton with the distinctive punk hairstyle was already playing the gamut from baroque to rock, when David Garrett was still attending primary school.

Ray Dawe writes in The West Sussex Gazette: I was very fortunate to be in the audience at the Capitol theatre in Horsham about ten days ago to see a superb performance by Nigel Kennedy. There was a packed house and it was great to see that there is such a huge audience for live music in the District. By the standards of modern music venues the Capitol is relatively small and so full marks to our theatre manager, Nick Mowat, for getting such a prestigious performer here.
