Classical Archives Features Exclusive Interview with Joshua Bell

Palo Alto, CA -- Classical Archives (, the ultimate classical music destination, proudly presents a high-profile Exclusive Interview with star of the classical music world, violinist Joshua Bell, who has a stellar new release.

The engaging and fascinating interview with preeminent violinist Joshua Bell was conducted one day before the release of his new Sony Classical album, At Home With Friends which soared to Number 1 on the Billboard Classical Albums Chart! In a rich discussion with Classical Archives Artistic Director Dr. Nolan Gasser, Mr. Bell discusses the impetus behind the new cross-genre release, which features collaborations with some of the brightest stars in the broader music world including Sting, Josh Groban, Kristin Chenoweth, Chris Botti, and new vocal sensation Regina Spektor. The album stems largely from a series of informal soires held at Mr. Bell's Manhattan apartment which he describes as "a kind of a dream I've had to have a regular salon-type series at my house." The interview also touches on the musical approach to arrangements on the album, his experience in the recording studio, future plans, and much more. A must read!
