Editorial Reviews

With critically acclaimed performances and sold-out concerts, Joshua Bell has become a heartthrob to legions of concert goers everywhere and one of today's hottest classical stars! With a career that began on Decca, Indiana-born Joshua Bell recorded a complete catalog of violin repertoire that was certainly a portent of things to come. As his career continues to soar and take flight, this new compilation presents a wonderful selection of favorite concerto movements and other solo pieces that dazzle and impress. Decca. 2005.

This CD is a wonderful CD to see how Joshua Bell interprets some of the standard repertory of violinists of this century. The only thing I was dissapointed in slightly was that it included music from other CD's already produced by Bell, but otherwise, a wonderful gift for someone who has never heard Bell before.

Love Joshua Bell, but I would have been happier if I'd made a different choice (in the music, not the artist)

Joshua Bell, Essential, Exquisite, Excellence, Emotional, Electric, Effervescent, etc.

These super "E" adjectives just begin to characterize Maestro Bell's breathtaking performance and heartfelt musical interpretations of all the music he performs.

Betcha ya can't just buy one Bell CD like those Lay Potato Chips!

If you ever have the opportunity to hear him in person, PLEASE DON'T MISS IT! And afterwards he signs programs, his CDs, will allow photographs to be taken. A violinist without equal and the true gentleman and "NICE GUY!"

The total clarity with which Joshua Bell plays the violin is exceptionally appealing. No note escapes untouched and unnoticed - each is hauntingly beautiful. The style of this amazing artist is a distinctive as the brush strokes of the greatest painters.
