Joshua Bell plays with the Omaha Symphony

Nov 16, 2012

Virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell performs with the Omaha Symphony tonight and tomorrow at the Holland Center. 

Bell will be performing Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto,” a piece he says was considered unplayable when it was composed because of its considerable technical challenges.

Though Bell has played the piece more than a thousand times, he says he never tires of it.
