One of the best-selling classical albums of all-time!

In 1989, a spiky-haired, loud-mouthed lad from Brighton, seemingly the antithesis of all classical music stood for, swaggered in from the Yehudi Menuhin School and recorded Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. His vibrant, edge-of-your-seat playing and fresh approach ensured the disc entered the Guiness Book of Records as the best-selling classical album of all time. As Classic FM presenter John Brunning recently opined, "Nigel Kennedy changed classical music forever."

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of virtuoso violinist Nigel Kennedy’s landmark recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, the original best-selling album is available in this very special 25th Anniversary LP Edition.

Nigel Kennedy’s recording was originally released 25th September 1989 and went on to become one of the best-selling classical albums of all-time. Originally recorded in November 1986 in the Church of St John-at-Hackney, London, it was a recording that would achieve unprecedented public and media attention and change the course of music history.

Twenty-five years later, Kennedy's performance remains a benchmark.
