One of the most celebrated violinists of his era, Joshua Bell made his Philadelphia Orchestra debut at 14. His career has embraced acclaimed recordings, dozens of awards, and performances that have taken him from the White House to Hollywood. He performs two passionate works, thrill rides of emotion from Henri Vieuxtemps and Ernest Chausson. The program closes with Brahms’s First Symphony—lush, dramatic, and romantic in every sense of the word.
