Classic Kennedy Customer Reviews
||Speaks to my soul|
Classic Kennedy This release by Nigel Kennedy contains a selection of wonderful music played with flair and passion. Classic Kennedy However, Nigel's performance of Danny Boy (Londonderry Air)is sublime. It speaks to my soul. It is easily worth the purchase price alone. I have loved this song for years, but have never been fully satisfied with any of the available performances, including a beautiful performance by James Galway we had played at our father's funeral service. It was his favourite piece of music. A few years ago I watched a Documentary devoted exclusively to this song, and while all the performances had something to offer none captured the mood perfectly. Although a knowledge of the background and theme of the song are essential for a full understanding of its message, the lyrics simply can't convey the mood of the piece as precisely as Nigel Kennedy has in this unbelievable performance. It affects me profoundly every time I hear it. Buy this CD for an amazing experience.
