Joshua Bell violin & music director
Joshua Bell leads the Academy in a programme of iconic string orchestra repertoire from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
Bell features as soloist in Bach’s spirited Violin Concerto in A minor before directing his virtuosic third Brandenburg Concerto from the leader’s chair.
Mahler’s sumptuous string orchestra arrangement of Schubert’s String Quartet in D minor, ‘Death and the Maiden’, and Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires complete the programme. Adapted by composer and Piazzolla aficionado Leonid Desyatnikov in the 1990s, Four Seasons of Buenos Aires brilliantly fuses Piazzolla’s music with Vivaldi’s original Four Seasons and is undoubtedly one of the most popular violin works of modern times.
