Joshua Bell and Sam Haywood performed Sunday afternoon at Symphony Hall for the Celebrity Series of Boston.
Giuseppe Tartini’s Violin Sonata in G minor, “The Devil’s Trill.”
Beethoven Violin Sonata No.10
Stravinsky’s Divertimento for violin and piano
2 Encores: Tchaikovsky Melodie / Wieniawski Polonaise in A
I like Joshua Bell’s lyricism and his fluent and full use of the bow. I feel that his body and mind is united with his violin. He knows what audience wants, and his musical voice combined with appropriate gestures and moves is all together more than enough to grab the hall’s attention. I respect his stage manner, and I also admire the conversation between the violinist and the accompanist.
Now, YURA!! Let’s practice!!
