Why See St. Louis Symphony - Bell Performs Bruch?
Joshua Bell Climbs the Heights of Bruch's Concerto
One of the most celebrated violinists of the modern era, Joshua Bell showed prodigious talent from a young age, marking the start of his stellar ascent to classical heights as the youngest ever soloist to play with the Philadelphia Orchestra and a rapturous Carnegie Hall debut in 1985. The respected performer lends his bow to a rousing program of Elgar, Bruch and Ralph Vaughan Williams with the St. Louis Symphony and special guest conductor Michael Francis, a British Maestro renowned for his tenure as chief conductor to the Norrkoping Symphony Orchestra.
Bell will take to the stage during Bruch's soaring Violin Concerto No. 1, one of the most popular concertos in the entire western repertoire, as well as one of Bruch's most popular works. This is thanks to the piece's resplendent showcasing of the instrument with dazzling virtuosic flights and a soul-stirring finale that pushes its strings to new heights. Romantic, melodic and soulful, this is the stuff of classical music legend - a perfect match for a player of Bell's calibre.
