Another great ERSO moment – with Nigel Kennedy!

The Musical Times diary section for May 1984

Delving into ERSO’s past, our detective work turned up this concert back in 1984 with Nigel Kennedy as our soloist playing the Stravinsky Violin concerto.

The concert took place just after Kennedy had made his recording debut with the Elgar Violin concerto, which went on to win the 1986 BRIT award for the best classical recording, and before he became known as one of the world’s leading violin virtuosos.

We wish we had a time machine and could go back and play in this one!!
