Joshua Bell came to national attention at the age of 14 with his orchestral debut with Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra. He performs regularly with the world's leading symphony orchestras and conductors.
Violinist Joshua Bell's new CD ("At Home With Friends") includes a tango by the Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla's music delves deep into a world of exotic, romantic and gritty passion. His music is good on the ears and the imagination, but there's more than one way to play Piazzolla. Joshua Bell talked with David Srebnik about the choices he made when he recorded Piazzolla's "Oblivion."
Joshua Bell's new CD, "At Home with Friends," recreates some of the musical soirees he enjoys at home with his musical and music-loving friends, including Sting, Josh Groban, Chris Thile, Regina Spektor, Edgar Meyer, Chris Botti and Tempo Libre.
