The letter is N for Nigel Kennedy
Before David Garrett
and although both of them are fabulous violinists
I know each note of Nigel Kennedy
and Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Major
(which I believe he recorded before
he stopped for a period
making public appearances).
Anyway, I have had this CD for many long years
and the notes have wafted through the house
while I did dishes, made beds,
swept the floor, and all the other things
home makers do....
at the same time I was listening to his marvelous recording
of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, which added to his fame and reputation.
Both Garrett and Kennedy are inclined to exotic clothing
and exotic hair styles, but their music is heavenly.
I found a Youtube recording that gives testament
to Nigel Kennedy's versatility,
wherein Bach flows into Jazz...
But more poignant is this lovely
spine chilling rendition of
More interesting Ns at ABC Wednesday, here,
to Roger, Denise, Leslie and their notable helpers.
