Reunited with Joshua Bell and Dvorak with a Czech Accent
Wednesday, February 15th

Ludo Morlot 300x196Music Director Ludovic Morlot talks with KING FM’s Dave Beck about his experiences performing with this week’s guest artist at the Seattle Symphony: the superstar violinist Joshua Bell. Joshua was named Music Director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in 2011, the first person to hold the title since the late Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.

The Seattle Symphony and Joshua Bell are Grammy Award-winning artists. Joshua has recorded more than 40 CDs including the Oscar-winning soundtrack for The Red Violin. Joshua Bell plays the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with Ludovic and the Seattle Symphony in performances throughout the weekend. Also on the program this week: Bedrich Smetana’s “Dance of the Comedians” and Antonin Dvorak’s 8th Symphony brings the program to a close.
