About

Nigel Kennedy’s first album of his own compositions - just in time for his 60th birthday – gives the most intimate insight into his fascinatingly diverse musical life. In the cycle Dedications he pays tribute to his musical role models: to his teachers and mentors Yehudi Menuhin and Isaac Stern, the multi-genre violinist Stéphane Grappelli and Mark O’Connor, whom Kennedy rates as one of the most important violinists alive today. He also mentions jazz guitarist Jarosław Śmietana, whom Kennedy is close to as a result of his frequent visits to Cracow.

The second half of the album is a moving and atmospheric suite Kennedy composed, entitled Three Sisters, based on Anton Chekhov’s play.

Nigel Kennedy and Neue Meister share a common vision: to make music that transcends all conventions. There could is no better way of launching a cooperation than with the My World album, which exclusively comprises Nigel’s own
compositions.
