Comment:

Marketed as the antic young prince of classical music in the late '80s — complete with Aston Villa scarf and startled hedgehog hair — violinist Nigel Kennedy made the transition from mercurial kid prodigy to original crossover superstar with ease. On a one-man mission to make the great composers (or the "old guys", as he has called them) accessible to modern pop audiences, he took sales of Vivaldi's [i]The Four Seasons[/i] into the realms of the phenomenal in 1989. We open with "La Primavera".

Kennedy throws some Duke Ellington into the mix, in Next Steps.
