Superstar US violinist Joshua Bell has brought fresh new vigour to the already accomplished Academy of St Martin in the Fields since taking the reins as Music Director in 2011, the first director since founder Sir Neville Marriner.

For the second of his three-concert International Festival residency, Bell fronts the Academy as both soloist and director in two bracing musical visions of wide open spaces and the wonders of nature.

Bell is soloist in the lyrical Caledonian tunes of Bruch’s rousing Scottish Fantasy. And from the violin, he guides us through the unforgettable nature portraits of Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony – its rustic dances, sparkling brook and cataclysmic storm.
