With his celebrity status and ubiquitous presence as a recording artist, it’s easy to forget the most important thing about Joshua Bell: He’s one of the best violinists around. This recital, with frequent collaborator Sam Haywood, is sure to make the point that this is a virtuoso “who doesn’t stand in anyone’s shadow” (The New York Times).
