Om Joshua Bell
One of today's preeminent names in violin performance, Joshua Bell is often on the road concertizing; keep an eye on the newspapers and you might catch a performance near you. Since his concert debut in Philadelphia in his early teens, his career has been one ascending graph line. Composers such as John Corigliano have written works for him, and Bell collaborates with major players of the classical world, including Aaron Jay Kernis, John Williams and Nicholas Maw. All this is to say that Bell plays the violin very, very well.
