Joshua Bell’s Top Three Performances
There is no easy way to explain the genius of Joshua Bell. The Grammy award-winning violinist and conductor is one of the greats of American classical music. The 50-year-old Bell is a legend internationally and one of the great, charismatic performers of today’s classical music scene.
Here are my top three favorite Joshua Bell Performances!
- Washington’s Union Station Performance, 2007
This was an impromptu performance in the middle of the nation’s capital, at Union Station. Watch the commuters go by unawares. This is an unforgettable sight and a memorable recording in an unorthodox setting for a musician.
2. Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, 2011 at The Hollywood Bowl
The Four Seasons is one of the most recognizable classical works. It has been recorded numerous times and is challenging to perform in an original manner. Watching Joshua Bell play in the legendary Hollywood Bowl only adds to the moment!
3. At the Washington Metro
This was an extraordinary performance. Joshua Bell played flawlessly at the “L’enfant” metro station in the nation’s capitol.
Joshua Bell is without a doubt one of the most gifted classical violinists. His precision, grace, and skill make for a rare and memorable combination!
