Episode 173: Joshua Bell interview, Australian Youth Orchestra Tour

I'd been planning the interview with Joshua Bell for a while. The schedule had been very hectic, and Bell tends to be a bit touchy on performance days, so the timing had to be just right.

He's a very easy character to interview, once you manage to get him into the room. He and I agreed to leave it until after the Amsterdam Concert, and the interview took us about 7 minutes to shoot.
Turns out he is facebook friends with my wife, whose career he is following.

The concert footage was a challenge to film, as the Kurhaus in the quaint German city of Wiesbaden didn't seem to have an inch of floor space that didn't contain an audience member; so hardly any room for a tripod (let alone two!).

Take a look:
