Notes & Reviews:

New album from the Grammy Award®-winning violinist featuring Brahms and Schumann repertoire. With world-renowned ensemble Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Featuring cellist Steven Isserlis and pianist Jeremy Denk.

As follow-up to 2014's acclaimed and chart-topping all-Bach recording, Grammy® Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell continues as Music Director and Conductor of the world-renowned ensemble, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Joshua Bell is the first American and first person to hold the title of Music Director since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958. On their new collaboration, Bell conducts ASMF mostly from the concertmaster's chair in a Brahms/Schumann program. On Brahms' Double Concerto and Schumann's Violin Concerto in D Minor, 2nd Movement, Bell and the Academy orchestra are joined by cellist Steven Isserlis. Rounding out the repertoire is Brahms' Piano Trio in B Major, Op. 8, with Bell and Isserlis joined by pianist Jeremy Denk. The trio chose to record the lesser known first version of the Piano Trio that Brahms wrote in 1854 when he was in his 20's. Although the later version is almost always played today, Bell finds this earlier version more moving.
