What he offers you

Nigel's virtuoso technique, unique talent and mass appeal have brought fresh perspectives to both the classical and contemporary repertoire. His strength is his remarkable sensitivity in caressing a melody to life.

How he presents

Nigel is almost as well known for shunning classical-music traditions, his expletive-strewn "mockney" language and his shambolic attire, as he is for his fabulous, if sometimes controversial, interpretations of classical music.


He presents in English.
