With a career spanning more than 30 years as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist and conductor, Joshua Bell is one of the most celebrated violinists of his era. Together with his Academy of St Martin in the Fields appearance, audiences have the rare opportunity to see an artist working in multiple settings, exploring his limitless musical gifts. Alessio Bax is known for combining exceptional lyricism and insight with consummate technique. Gramophone raves that Bax is "among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public."
