 Kennedy At His Best July 24, 2013 By John C. (Pinawa, MB) See All My Reviews "This CD is almost too beautiful to listen to in its entirety at one sitting. Gorgeous music for reading a good book by or for just chilling out at home. Absolutely sublime. You can feel Kennedy's emotion in recording these pieces with every stroke of the bow and can do no wrong with this purchase. Go for it or forever regret it." Report Abuse
