If the notion persists that Nigel Kennedy is the enfant terrible of classical music – too rebellious or facile to be taken seriously – then perhaps it is time to reconsider his categorization. Kennedy's varied interests certainly take him beyond the boundaries of the typical classical performer, and his performance style may be too flamboyant to suit some listeners' tastes. But East Meets East is far from shocking, if understood as an exploration of Eastern European music, presented in a fusion of popular styles without pandering to the classical audience with crossover concessions. Fans of world music and open-minded listeners of any stripe may find something to appreciate here. Appearing with the Polish folk band Kroke and surrounded by several guest artists of international reputation, Kennedy shows that his involvement with this ethnic music is honest, if not always inspired.

This DVD contains pieces of two polish romantic composers, Mieczyslaw Karlowicz and Emil Mlynarski, performed by Nigel Kennedy accompanied by the Polish Chamber Orchestra, recorded live during various concerts in Poland.
While Nigel Kennedy is one of the leading violinists of his generation, he is also among the most controversial of musicians before the public, owing to his flashy persona, unconventional interpretations, and his seemingly innate sense to capture attention. Kennedy's rock-star-like appearance in concert (glittering jewelry, spiky hair, etc.) and his controversial politics (he has boycotted Israel, comparing that nation with South Africa) have often drawn sharp criticism.

A list of minor caveats to begin. First, audiophiles should be aware that this is, like all Kennedy's recordings, an analogue recording digitally processed and mastered. To my ears it sounds fine, vivid and positive, even if perhaps a little close. Second, Kennedy, who often takes up space with anti-critical diatribes, has this time allowed a critic, the acceptably blokeish Rob Cowan, to write the booklet notes, which strain to paint Bach as a bit of a punkish rebel himself. Third, Kennedy being Kennedy, he allows himself a degree of improvisatorial licence here and there at which some might raise an eyebrow but which to me seem idiomatic, spontaneous and pleasing. Indeed it is difficult not to like the entire disc. Kennedy makes a wonderful sound and seems genuinely thrilled by the challenge of getting his fingers around the notes. There's a sureness about his approach, a swaggering certitude in tone, articulation, phrasing that is hard to resist, and nothing about his playing is bland. He is partnered more than ably in the Double Concerto by Daniel Stabrawa and in the Violin and Oboe Concerto by Albrecht Mayer, and the conductorless strings of the Berlin Philharmonic make a rich but never swamping sound. While collectors who want something less occasional, more subtle, and more in the manner of the Baroque period should still look to an account like that of Andrew Manze, my benchmark, this is clearly a disc that will sit comfortably on the shelves alongside it.

L'enfant terrible du violon revient avec un enregistrement consacré aux concertos pour violon de Bach. Largement inspirés de Vivaldi et de son énergie solaire, ces chefs d'oeuvre absolus sont amoureusement bousculés par Nigel Kennedy qui, avec l'Orchestre Philarmonique de Berlin, allège et tonifie ces concertos comme personne ne l'a fait avant lui. Encore plus fidèle à ses perceptions, l'irlandais regénère ces concertos avec la maestria qu'on lui reconnait et qui finit par convaincre les réfractaires.
