Interview with KMFA's Dianne Donovan

The new Sony Classical - Scottish Fantasy release from Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell showcases two masterpieces from romantic composer Max Bruch. In addition to Bell's first recording of the virtuosic Scottish Fantasy is the Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, which Bell first recorded over thirty years ago with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Sir Neville Marriner. Now, as Music Director of the Academy, Bell both performs and directs the orchestra, and offers a fresh take on the Bruch Concerto in addition to a thrilling performance of the Scottish Fantasy.
