Notes & Reviews:

Adding to his illustrious resume, Grammy® Award-winning violinist JOSHUA BELL has been named Music Director of the world-renowned ensemble, Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Bell conducts mostly from the concertmaster's chair and in this way led the orchestra for their first recording of this all - Beethoven repertoire. He is the first American and first person to hold the title of Music Director since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.

Washington Post
Bell alternated playing along with the first violins and conducting (with great physical animation from his seat, sculpting the air expressively with his bow to bring forth a wealth of interpretive detail from the musicians. This was as superb a Beethoven Fourth as I've heard, delivered by a conductor of tremendous promise and genuine ideas - who also happens to be one heck of a violinist.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Joshua Bell, the celebrated violin soloist, has taken his hand to conducting, and this in fact is his first recording in that capacity. By any measure these are very well played: strong and lithe, with very open, clear textures and excellent ensemble.
