Joshua Bell by Bill Phelps

With a career spanning more than 30 years as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and conductor, Joshua Bell is one of the most celebrated violinists of our time. An exclusive Sony Classical artist, Mr. Bell has recorded more than 40 albums, garnering Grammy, Mercury, Gramophone, and Echo Klassik awards, and is a recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize. Named music director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields in 2011, he is the only person to hold this post since Neville Marriner, who formed the orchestra in 1958.

In summer 2017 Mr. Bell led the Academy of St Martin in the Fields at the Edinburgh Festival and Bravo! Vail, and performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, Tanglewood, and the Hollywood Bowl. In the fall he participates in the New York Philharmonic’s Bernstein’s Philharmonic: A Centennial Festival. Alessio Bax joins him in recitals in nine North American cities, after which he performs with the Vienna Symphony, Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, and with Academy of St Martin in the Fields at London’s Wigmore Hall. In spring 2018 Mr. Bell will return to the Academy in tours of the United Kingdom, the United States, and Asia. He performs ten recitals in Europe and America with pianist Sam Haywood, and on February 7, 2018, he will reunite with pianist Jeremy Denk, a regular collaborator, for a recital broadcast live from Carnegie Hall. Other season highlights include appearances with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, and an all-Beethoven play / direct program with the Orchestre national de Lyon.

On August 18, 2017, Sony Classical released Joshua Bell — The Classical Collection, a 14-CD set of albums of classical repertoire that displays his breadth, versatility, and breathtaking virtuosity.

A dedicated arts advocate, Mr. Bell is involved with Education Through Music and Turnaround Arts.

He performs on the 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin.
