Joshua Bell: This bow is worth more than my house…main
The American violinist has given an interview of rare candour to our friend Zsolt Bognar, at Living the Classical Life.
He has got nothing to sell, nothing to plug. He talks, musician to musician, about growing up in a family of therapists, about playing 150 concerts a year, about the struggle to raise funds for his first instruments… and his present playing tools.
He also mentions a gambling streak in the family that pushes him to take risks. And ‘the most beautiful sound I have ever heard on a violin’.
Watch at the weekend. It’s 44 minutes. Right here.
