BBC radio, mercifully free of irritating & repetitive advertising.
Apart from bragging about their own stuff that is..

Quite often beautiful. Especially enjoy the haunting trumpet sound.

This section of the forum is about as popular as a fart in a space suit & it can be hard to fathom but never mind. Cars & bikes are intrinsically boring too...¬¬
Here's some passionate music played ...with passion . On vinyl..

I can't stand Kennedy's public persona, but I do love his Four Seasons. I have several versions, probably my previous favourite was I Solisti Veneti with Claudio Scimone. However, since getting the Kennedy version, that's the one I play most now.

Here's another of my favourites.

Hugh Bean soloist.

Kennedy's public persona does go against the grain of the established 'norm' for classical musicians I agree Serge.
Classical music has a bit of a communication problem.
Many, or perhaps most ,view it as elitist & snobby which is not what it should be about . Kennedy, with his footie shirt & chav persona was probably saying that
preconceptions are just that..

Possibly then, I just don't like chavs, whether natural or affected.

He can fiddle a bit though.

Chavs are taking over the world.
Kennedy doesn't need that affectation  - he is a talented violinist.

Those are two of Vaughan Williams' most wonderful works, conducted by a champion of British classical music.

One of my favourites, and trying to find the best version on vinyl.

Jean Sibelius - Karelia - Intermezzo. is truly awe-inspiring.
