Violinist Joshua Bell
“Mr. Bell is an artist of exactly the right temperament … a mix of sterling technique, congeniality and spontaneity.” -The New York Times
One of today's hottest young conductors, Romanian-born Cristian Măcelaru is joined by world-renowned violinist Joshua Bell in Saint-Saëns' technically brilliant Violin Concerto No. 3 and Ravel's hair-raising Tzigane, perfectly designed to show off Bell's sheer talent. Vaughan Williams' dramatic Symphony No. 4, one of the most revered symphonies of the 20th century, is also on the program.
