Joshua Bell, “one of the finest musicians of his generation” (Washington Post), leads the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in a fantastical program. Following Mendelssohn’s whimsical overture, Bell shines in Wieniawski’s rhapsodic D-minor Concerto, a soulful work by the Polish-born composer and violin virtuoso pulsing with the passions of Romanticism. Beethoven’s bucolic “Pastoral” Symphony concludes the evening.
“Mr. Bell played with his trademark glowing sound, effortless virtuosity and improvisatory freedom.”– New York Times
