FIRST TIME TO SEE NIGEL KENNEDY WAS OF ALL PLACES, THE KENNEDY CENTRE.HE WAS PLAYING THE VIOLIN WITH SUCH VIGOR AND UNLEASHED A TORRET OF ENTHUSIASM THE 'OLD MONEY' ADORED THE WUNDERKIN! VIVALDI WOULD HAVE BEEN MOST PLEASED BY THIS UNCONVENTIONAL FELLOW. IN FACT THE AUDIENCE WAS TOLD TO BASCICALLY 'HANG ON'! HE STATED HE WAS NOT THE STAID TYPE TO KEEP IN ONE PLACE THAT NIGHT. THE TAPESTRY RUGS ABOUNDED EVERYWHERE TO ACCOMODATE HIS PROMISES. SPIKED HAIR,STERLING PINS FLASHING DOWN HIS COAT TO INCLUDE HIS LEFT ARM'S FABRIC WAS THRILLING. DO NOT MISS THIS LOVELY. AS CLOSE AS ONE CAN BE AND STILL KNOW EACH OF 'THE SEASONS' AND SOAR!WHEN HE CRESENDOED, FLINGING THE WHITE SILK SCARF, A ELDERLY LADY CAUGHT IT WITH A SHOWMANSHIP OF HER OWN. SWINGING IT IN THE AIR TO MUCH MUFFLED ALBEIT WELCOMED APPLAUSE.SHE LOOKED DIVINE.HE WAS A SHOT OF UNBRIDLED YOUTH AND THE VIOLIN A MERE EXTENSION OF HIS SOUL.BRAVO!
