WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
What can one say about Joshua Bell that hasn't already been said? That he is one of music's genuine superstars, along with Yo-Yo Ma and Lang Lang; that he is the leading American violinist of his generation; that he is equally at home as soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and orchestra leader (succeeding Sir Neville Marriner as the Music Director of London's Academy of St Martin in the Fields). In fact, not since Itzhak Perlman has any violinist so captured the public's attention, whether on the concert stage, on CD (more than 40), television (five Live from Lincoln Centers, the Grammys), or the big movie screen (the scores for The Red Vioilin, Iris, The Dreamer and Defiance).
