For more than twenty-five years, Mr Kennedy has been acknowledged as one of the world’s leading violin virtuosos and one of Britain’s most important violinists, and on Tuesday the Nigel Kennedy Quintet performed a sold-out show for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

During the performance Mr Kennedy’s jazz quintet performed an eclectic mix of Kennedy originals along with a selection of standards and covers.

Alison McFarlane, the festival’s executive director, said: “It was a fantastically engaging performance.

“Nigel Kennedy really wooed the audience. He received three standing ovations for a truly remarkable performance which demonstrated his range, versatility and skill.”

• The Norfolk and Norwich Festival runs until Saturday. For more information about festival events visit www.nnfestival.org.uk or call 01603 766400 to book tickets.

  • How incredibly dull. I've seen rolling pins with more cutting edge.
