When Joshua Bell pours his heart through his fingers and into his Stradivarius, every note feels like a private confession from him to you. He applies that poetic touch to the timeless elegance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, an understated masterpiece that demands total transparency and vulnerability from the soloist and orchestra alike. Haydn’s Symphony No. 102, composed for adoring fans in London, stands as a worldly, confident dispatch from a master at his absolute peak.
