NewsBeat: For Joshua Bell, the violin speaks to any audience

From the Boston Globe:

Joshua Bell

Violinist Joshua Bell’s next Boston concert will feature pieces by Beethoven, Stravinsky, and Tartini. But his public profile is not restricted to the classical world. Bell, 45, has performed on the TV show “Dancing With the Stars,” and in September was a judge for the Miss America pageant. His recordings range from classical repertoire to all-star assemblages like his new Christmas-themed album, “Musical Gifts From Joshua Bell and Friends,” with guests including Gloria Estefan, Alison Krauss, and Branford Marsalis.
The Grammy Award-winning, go-to subject of PBS concert films spoke with the Globe by phone in advance of his Nov. 17 Celebrity Series of Boston concert at Symphony Hall.
