Joshua Bell is an American Grammy Award-winning violinist. Joshua Bell made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1985 with the St Louis Symphony Orchestra. He has since performed with almost all of the world’s major orchestras and conductors. As well as the standard concerto repertoire, Bell has performed new works–he is the dedicatee of Nicholas Maw’s violin concerto, the recording of which won Bell a Grammy, and gave the world premiere of the work in 1993. He performed the solo part on John Corigliano’s Oscar-winning soundtrack for the film “The Red Violin” and was also featured in Ladies in Lavender. Bell also made an appearance in the movie “Music of the Heart”, a story about the inspirational power of music, with other notable violinists.
