East Meets East (Vinyl - 2LP)

Nigel Kennedy
East Meets East (Vinyl - 2LP)

Nigel Kennedy joins forces with the gifted Polish band Kroke to explore the musical roots of Eastern Europe while still injecting his own unique visions.  The raw energy and haunting melodies of traditional tunes fascinated old masters such as Vivaldi and Bach, and they fascinate Nigel Kennedy.  These aren't just a string of tunes to fill up a recording; they are individual excitements felt by Nigel and shared with you.  Vibrant dance material driven almost to a frenzy, 'One Voice' is a simple melody played in turn on three instruments by three musicians of three faiths, 'Lost in Time' a haunting solo piece describing winter living conditions in a quarter of Poland.  Again, very real, very personal; Nigel has a home in Poland.  The spectacular record is a pure musical landscape capturing all the sunlight and shadows of his life.
