Joshua Bell to perform at Fort Lauderdale's Broward Center / Sun Sentinel interview

Bookmark and Share

Despite his reputation by classical music critics as "the world's greatest living violinist," Jewish violinist Joshua Bell wants to be regarded for his humility more than his fame.

Bell will demonstrate his charm when he performs in concert at Broward Center on Nov. 1 at 8 p.m in Fort Lauderdale, FL. in sonatas for violin and piano as composed by Prokofiev and Schubert among other classical music works to be announced on stage. Bell will also be holding a masterclass for high school and college students prior to his concert.

"You have to credit my Jewish upbringing about the importance of doing mitzvot, or giving back to others, that reflects how grateful I am to be a musician. My piano teacher (Russian Jewish violinist Joseph Gingold) gave me advice and taught me the beauty of music as I became idolized by the great violinists such as Mischa Elman, who was a contemporary of Gingold," said the 46-year-old Bell.
