The new Four seasons by Antonio Vivaldi( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989 Nigel Kennedy made his breakthrough recording of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons.' In his sleeve notes to that famous release, Kennedy stressed that he had rejected the idea of playing Vivaldi's suite of violin concertos in either the "authentic" fashion, using period instruments, or in the more florid "romantic" style. He explained that his objective was to use "every kind of technique I know" to communicate his feeling for the music to his listeners. He didn't believe that The Four Seasons was confined to any particular point in time, because it "has far more to offer than mere historical interest." Now, in 2015, Kennedy returns with a completely fresh take on 'The Four Seasons,' but while the music sounds hugely different, his creative attitude is the same. Once again he has set out to prove that 'The Four Seasons' can be music for all time, and in his opinion there's no reason why Vivaldi's masterpiece shouldn't be opened up to embrace developments in musical instrument technology, or even new musical styles undreamt of in Vivaldi's 18th century world. Any forward-looking composer, Kennedy reasons, would have been delighted to exploit the potential of more expressive or sophisticated instrumentation if it had been available to him

Violin concerto in D, op. 77 by Johannes Brahms( Recording )

19 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in 5 languages and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brahms' Violinkonzert ist der Inbegriff für romantisches Violinkonzert und eines der bekanntesten Violinkonzerte überhaupt. Auch sein Doppelkonzert für Violine, Violoncello und Orchester ist ein Meisterwerk, das seinesgleichen sucht. Beide Werke entstanden für den Geiger Joseph Joachim, der sie auch zur Uraufführung brachte. - Der Geigerin Julia Fischer, deren bisherige Einspielungen mit Werken von Bach, Mozart, Tschaikowski u.a. auch international hoch gelobt und mit CD-Preisen nahezu überschüttet wurden, steht im Doppelkonzert der Cellist Daniel Müller-Schott als ebenbürtiger Partner zur Seite, dazu das Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra Amsterdam unter Yakov Kreizberg, mit dem Julia Fischer schon ihre früheren Konzerteinspielungen aufgenommen hat - eine herausragende Aufnahme, noch dazu in SACD-Qualität

Kennedy's 1989 release of the baroque masterpiece, named the best-selling classical recording of all time by the Guinness Book of World Records, topped the UK Classical Charts for over a year, reached #3 on the UK Pop Album chart and has sold more than two-million copies world wide. At one point, Nigel was selling more records a week than the combined total of the other 19 records in the UK Classical Sales Chart. The second disc features tracks from his award-winning and critically acclaimed jazz and pop recordings: standards from his Blue Note Sessions album, performances of his own pop and fusion compositions with the Nigel Kennedy Quintet and with Polish klezmer trio Kroke, as well as tracks from his most recent EMI Classics release Sssh!, including his collaboration with Culture Club singer Boy George
