Soulful intensity

With great seriousness and joy in playing, a soulful intensity, which always has its basis in a great stylistic confidence, Joshua Bell places himself entirely at the service of the music – and thus makes every concert an event. The exceptional American violinist will perform his chamber music evening together with Shai Wosner, who studied in Tel Aviv with Emanuel Krasovsky and at New York's Juilliard School with Emanuel Ax.

Franz Schubert's Sonata in D major, D 384, known as the »Sonatine,« opens the recital and enchants right at the beginning with its melodic allusion to W. A. Mozart's song »An Chloe.« Schubert may have learned how to involve the two instruments in an intense dialogue from Beethoven, whose Sonata in C minor, op. 30/2, from 1802, Joshua Bell and Shai Wosner follow with a composition whose pathetic, revolutionary tone and unconventional treatment of sonata form show Beethoven at the height of his mastery.
The second half of the program leads into the early 20th century with Maurice Ravel and Ernest Bloch. Ravel's sonata subtly sublimates the fascination with American jazz and blues through the sophistication inherent in Ravel's composing. Bloch composed his suite »Baal Shem« in 1923 in honor of the famous Polish rabbi Baal Shem Tow, who was famous in the 18th century for his serene, Hasidic attitude toward God.
