The Program

The violin superstar Joshua Bell has long been associated with Max Bruch’s rhapsodic concerto, having recorded it for his first-ever concerto album released when he was just 19. Tonight, with Louis Langrée and the Festival Orchestra, he once again traverses the melodic peaks, brilliant runs, and raucous dances of this unabashedly Romantic violin concerto. John Adams’s enigmatic fanfare Tromba lontana and Brahms’s sun-dappled Second Symphony complete this glowing program.

“When it comes to giving loving attention to canonical works […] and transmitting that love to his listeners, Joshua Bell is unparalleled.”
– Washington Post
“Joshua Bell is the greatest American violinist active today.”
– Boston Herald
