Symphony No. 4, “Italian”

Joshua Bell solos in and directs Mendelssohn’s beloved violin concerto, once described as “the heart’s jewel” among its German peers. He also directs the composer’s popular “Italian” Symphony, which recalls his love affair with Italy’s sun-drenched landscapes and the joie de vivre of its people. Mozart’s intensely emotional Symphony No. 25, written when he was just 17, marked his transition from prodigy to major composer.

“Mr. Bell puts his gifts for sweet tone and sinuous phrasing, as lavish as anyone’s in the world.”
The New York Times
