Joshua Bell will head to Shanghai for a recital with
Alessio Bax this April.
Bell is among the most celebrated violinists of his era,
renowned for his passion, restless curiosity and multi-faceted musical
interests. His scope is almost unparalleled, equally at home as a soloist,
chamber music, recording artist and orchestra leader.
Bell was named the Music Director of the Academy of St
Martin in the Fields in 2011, becoming the first person to hold this post since
Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.
Bell's 2015 summer performances include a South American
and European tour with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, a tour to South
Africa including appearances with the Johannesburg Philharmonic and Starlight
Classics, performances in New York and Shanghai with the New York Philharmonic
and summer festivals including Verbier, Tanglewood, Mostly Mozart and
Pianist Alessio Bax creates “a ravishing listening
experience” with his lyrical playing, insightful interpretations, and dazzling
facility. “His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity,” says
Gramophone magazine, leading to what Dallas Morning News calls “an out-of-body
First Prize winner at the Leeds and Hamamatsu
international piano competitions—and a 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant
recipient—he has appeared as soloist with over 100 orchestras, including the
London and Royal Philharmonic orchestras, the Dallas and Houston symphonies, the
NHK Symphony in Japan, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic with Yuri Temirkanov, and
the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with Sir Simon Rattle.
