Joshua Bell with the NJSO

Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture
Ravel: Tzigane (for Violin and Orchestra) / Grieg: Peer Gynt Suite No. 1
Sibelius: Violin Concerto in D, Op. 47

The leading American violinist of his generation returns to Prudential Hall with NJPAC’s resident orchestra, under the baton of Music Director Jacques Lacombe. The program will include the Sibelius Violin Concerto in D—that composer’s only concerto, and one that demands the kind of breathtaking virtuosity for which Bell has become known—as well as works by Tchaikovsky, Ravel and Grieg.

“(Bell’s playing) does nothing less than tell human beings why they bother to live,” says Interview. Elle magazine recently classified him as “the most celebrated American-born violinist of the modern era”–and with this program, you’ll discover why. This evening will include Tchaikovsky’s emotionally charged musical drama, Romeo and Juliet; Ravel’s sublimely rhapsodic Tzigane for Violin and Orchestra; Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, and the Sibelius Violin Concerto in D, that composer’s only concerto, and one that demands the kind of breathtaking virtuosity for which Bell has become known. “The sound just flows from Bell’s fiddle, as close to perfection as anything on Earth,” says The Seattle Times.
