Win a copy of Nigel Kennedy's new CD of Mozart and Beethoven Violin Concertos

Classical music competition

2 April 2008

Nigel KennedyOn 14 April 2008 EMI Classics releases a new album from quite possibly the most talked-about classical musician in the world, Nigel Kennedy. This is your chance to win your very own copy!

Nigel Kennedy turned the classical music scene on its head in the late 1980s with a ground-breaking recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons which sold 6 million copies worldwide. He remains the best-selling international classical violinist of all time and for this new album has recorded the Beethoven Violin Concerto and coupled it with Mozart's Fourth Violin Concerto, both recorded with the Polish Chamber Orchestra.

For over 25 years, Nigel Kennedy has been acknowledged as one of the world's leading violinists. With his virtuosic technique, unique talent and natural ability to communicate with his audience, he has brought fresh perspectives and new audiences to classical music. Now, undeterred by having reached his early 50s, Kennedy is still every bit the non-conformist bad boy of classical music with his trademark Mohawk hairstyle, designer stubble and sunglasses.

For your chance to win your very own copy of Nigel Kennedy's new Mozart and Beethoven album simply answer the question below:


How many copies did Nigel Kennedy's recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons sell?

a) 600

b) 6,000
