Joshua Bell violin; Sam Haywood piano

Vitali, Beethoven, Fauré and more


  • Joshua Bell violin
  • Sam Haywood piano

Described by The Strad as ‘the one who will be remembered in fifty years’ time’ and praised by the Boston Herald as ‘the greatest American violinist active today’, Joshua Bell has achieved the highest distinction as soloist, chamber musician, recording artist and orchestral leader.

The breadth of his musical interests is reflected in everything from his vast repertoire and discography of over 40 recordings to his work as Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Bell’s mature artistry is directed in this recital to a programme that calls for musical and psychological insight, flights of virtuosity and sustained lyricism.
