I saw Joshua Bell last night at Carnegie Hall. He performed Brahms Violin Concerto. His playing of the first movement was so masterful. What an amazing cadenza! I was looking at the faces of the first violinists. They were enraptured. No standard cadenza for Joshua Bell!
The only disappointment was that he did not play an encore. : (
Were any other V.com members at the performance?
