World-renowned American violinist Joshua Bell performed Tchaikovsky’s unabashedly romantic Violin Concerto in D at the annual Nobel Prize Concert, held on December 8 at the Stockholm Konzerthuset. That concert was recorded live and will be available for free streaming beginning Friday, December 10 at www.medici.tv. Sakari Oramo conducts the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in a program that features Sibelius’s craggy, majestic Symphony No. 5. The 2010 Nobel Prize Concert will also be available for 60 days of free streaming-on-demand at www.medici.tv.
Soon after, Bell will be featured on another program at www.medici.tv, once again playing a great masterpiece for violin and orchestra. The concert on December 17 from the Cité de la Musique in Paris will be webcast live (and available soon after for video-on-demand streaming) and features Bell performing Mendelssohn’s Concerto in E minor, Op. 64 – complete with Bell’s own cadenza, written for the occasion – with Vladimir Jurowski conducting the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. The program, which also presents a waltz by Glinka and Schubert’s Third Symphony, can also be watched at the website citedelamusiquelive.tv.
