He and the orchestra have partnered with Grammy Award–winning Reference Recordings for CDs that include a new album of works by American composer Adam Schoenberg; works by Elgar, Sibelius, and Saint-Saëns; and Holst’s The Planets. Under Mr. Stern’s direction, IRIS Orchestra — based in Germantown, Tennessee, and acclaimed for virtuosity, programming depth and variety, and a focus on American contemporary music — has commissioned and premiered works by William Bolcom, Chris Brubeck, Richard Danielpour, Stephen Hartke, Edgar Meyer, Jonathan Leshnoff, Ned Rorem, and Huang Ruo, among others, and has released recordings on the Naxos and Arabesque labels. Michael Stern has conducted the Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, Indianapolis, National, Montreal, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Seattle, and Boston symphony orchestras, The Cleveland and Philadelphia orchestras, and the New York Philharmonic. He also appears regularly at Aspen, and has served on the faculty of the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen. He has led the major orchestras in London, Stockholm, Paris, Helsinki, Budapest, Israel, and Moscow, Taiwan, and Tokyo.

Joshua Bell


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 his era. An exclusive Sony Classical artist, he has recorded more than 40 albums, garnering Grammy, Mercury, Gramophone, and Echo Klassik awards, and is a recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize. Named the 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 formed the orchestra in 1958. In 2018 he tours with the Academy to the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, and Asia. He performs ten recitals in Europe and America with pianist Sam Haywood, and on February 7, 2018, he reunites with pianist Jeremy Denk for a recital, broadcast live from Carnegie Hall. Further season highlights include engagements with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Danish National Symphony, and an all-Beethoven play-direct program with the Orchestre national de Lyon. Recently Sony Classical released Joshua Bell — The Classical Collection, a 14-CD set of classical repertoire displaying his breadth, versatility, and virtuosity. Slated for April 2018 is his recording of Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy and G-minor Concerto with the Academy. Mr. Bell recently engaged in two “tech projects:” With Embertone, the leading virtual instrument sampling company,  the Joshua Bell Virtual Violin was created for producers, artists, engineers, and composers. He also partnered with Sony for the Joshua Bell VR Experience, featuring Mr. Bell performing Brahms’s Hungarian Dance No. 1 in full, 360-degree VR, available as a free download for SONY PlayStation 4 VR. Convinced of the value of music as an educational tool, Joshua Bell is a member of Turnaround Arts and Education Through Music, which provide arts education to low-performing elementary and middle schools. He performs on the 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin.
