Ce commentaire est de: Salut d'Amour & Other Elgar Favourites (Audio CD)
Nigel Kennedy is deemed by many people to be a talented violinist. He is technically brilliant but has not got the important feeling for music to make him a good virtuoso. He certainly misunderstood Elgar. The elgar pieces played on this CD is pieces with a lot of feeling, which Nigel Kennedy completely ignored and turned the whole performance into a violin-bashing exercise. Different violinists have different talents for different composers. Kennedy should leave Elgar, and for that matter Bach alone. He just does not connect with these composers at all. There is more to playing classical music than tecnique.
