Joshua Bell, live in the Greene Space

Violinist and Music Director of Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Joshua Bell, has worked with such a wide variety of musicians from singer/songwriter Regina Spektor to the late Ravi Shankar; from young American composer Jay Greenburg to the Cuban music group Tiempo Libre. He visits our studio close on the heels of a tour & collaborative record with world-renowned cellist Steven Isserlis, and their all-Brahms program, which included the Double Concerto, thought to be one of Johannes Brahms’ greatest late works. Joshua Bell also recounts the seance story behind Robert Schumann's Violin Concerto, as well as the torrid history behind Brahms' entanglement with Clara Schumann
