Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Joshua Bell

Academy of St Martin in the Fields Joshua Bell Violin
Johann Sebastian Bach Chaconne aus der Partita für Violine solo d-Moll BWV 1004 mit der Klavierbegleitung von Robert Schumann, für Orchester bearbeitet von Robert Stephenson Niccolò Paganini Konzert für Violine und Orchester Nr. 1 D-Dur op. 6 Pause Robert Schumann Sinfonie Nr. 2 C-Dur op. 61

A cartoon about the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the most famous British chamber orchestra, depicts a radio with a speech bubble reading: “You have just heard the Academy of St Martin in the Fields conducted by...”. Next to it, a parrot sits on its perch and squawks, “Neville Marriner!” The legendary era under founder Sir Neville lasted until 2011 – a sensational 53 years. With Joshua Bell as artistic director, a generational change has taken place at the highest level. The star violinist plays and conducts Bach's famous Chaconne as well as Paganini’s virtuoso Violin Concerto No. 1. Upon the completion of his Symphony No. 2, Robert Schumann was able to leave behind his depression at least temporarily.
