Mozart's Attic - Thursday, August 18th 10:00 pm
Few cities can match London when it comes to world class orchestras. From the Royal Philharmonic to the Academy of Ancient Music to the London Symphony to any of a dozen more, London has become one of the great centers of orchestral performance in today's world.
Since 1959, one of those great ensembles has been the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. In 2011, Sir Neville Marriner, the orchestra's founding music director passed his baton to a new-generation director, American violinist Joshua Bell.
So how's the new guy doing?
Hear Joshua Bell conducting the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 this Thursday night and see what you think.
