Program Notes

At age 14, violinist Joshua Bell made his professional debut as a soloist with Riccardo Muti and The Philadelphia Orchestra—the start of a distinguished career. Bruch’s crowd-pleasing melodies become incandescent as Bell leads and performs his Violin Concerto No. 1. Florence Price’s Adoration, originally written for organ, showcases the sweet serenity of strings. The journey continues with Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony, widely considered one of the best examples of his genius.


Please note: This performance originally included Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 and Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto.
