Editorial Reviews

Ever since appearing with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 14, this fiddlin' phenom from Bloomington, Indiana has been the talk of the classical world. He also went on to play bluegrass and work with everyone from Chick Corea to James Taylor; this 2-CD set collects his choice cuts with Edgar Meyer plus I Got Rhythm; Nice Work if You Can Get It ; selections from Swan Lake and the film score to The Red Violin ; violin-concerto movements by Mendelssohn, Beethoven and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone February 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whether Chopin, Beethoven, Gershwin, or Bernstein is your composer of choice, you will find something here to please you. If you want a taste of many kinds of violin music, this is also your dual cd. Interesting variety, compelling style, gifted musicianship - these make this a five-star album. The cute picture of Joshua Bell on the cover doesn't hurt!

Last December I saw him playing with the New York Philarmonic, and that has been one of my most unforgettable experience of my life. I have all his records and this is one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars My mom LOVES this CD!!! January 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD for my mother for Christmas, and she absolutely loves it. She loves violin, so I thought this would be a perfect gift for her, as I have heard that Joshua Bell is such an awesome violinist. Apparently, I heard correctly!! Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joshua Bell IS Essential August 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Joshua Bell is not only "Atlas Maidenswoon"but a superb violinist.He brings out all the richest sounds the violin is capable of,without any of its sometimes ugly screeches!He has won me over to the violin,which I must admit was my least favorite instrument.Even in rush hour,I can't understand why people in the train station didn't pause to listen.Yes,he DID play in a train station.From Classical to Gershwin,he'll get you hooked too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this October 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I keep this CD in my van at all times. It definately is not a typical violin cd. There is a variety of different types of music on this one. IT is very, very good. I really enjoy Joshua Bell's music.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Bell November 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If it's by Joshua Bell, it has to be good! I gave this album as a gift, so didn't unwrap and listen to it myself, but I have other cherished recordings by this artist and all are sublime.
