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.

Those who do not prefer violin music should try this. His violin will change your world.
His music touches people's heart.

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!!

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!

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.

I am enjoying the selection of music on this 2 CD e-music album. There were several of the pieces that I had considered downloading individually, and those happened to all be included here, plus there was a nice variety of other music from his albums as well.
