A lesson on persuasion from TED-Ed – how logos, ethos, and pathos can influence perception, and even change the response to a violin performance!

Thanks for all the Barcelona suggestions! I have wonderful memories of this city, and fondly remember the first I performed here in 1985. While I played Saint-Saëns on this trip, my Barcelona debut was of Lalo's Symphonie espagnole with Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Looking forward to checking a lot of those restaurants off my list.

I've heard that Barcelona is one of the world's best food cities, and I'll be back at L'Auditori de Barcelona this week. What are some spots that I can't miss?

I’m heartbroken to hear about the tragic loss of Anna Lucia Kim, an esteemed colleague at Primo Artists and cherished member of her school, church, and the music community. Although Primo Artists is part of my management team, I sadly never had the opportunity to meet Anna, who has been working for Primo as an intern. Anna Lucia Kim passed away Friday at the age of 24, and I cannot imagine the grief her father and sister are going through. I'm sharing a link to a page that includes a fundraiser that was set up to help enable her family to get through this terrible tragedy.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday. This year I'm in St. Louis, celebrating with family before three concerts of Bruch. The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra holds a special place in my own history – I made my Carnegie Hall debut with them back when I was 17!

It's always a great experience performing with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields – our longstanding partnership fosters an atmosphere of growth and an attitude of camaraderie expressed in performance. This past week in Moscow, exploring the city and performing at a new venue, was a testament to the relationship we've built through the years. Read more about our recent recording and history in Strings Magazine. Спасибо Москва!

Wishing a happy and safe Halloween to all! Throwback to a very early Bell family Halloween – pictured here as a pirate with my sister Toby the princess.
“Every day the violin responds differently. There are some days I just want to sell it, and then the next day, something changes. All of a sudden I’m just so in love with it. You have to keep falling in love for years.”
A recap of my conversation with Elvis Mitchell at the 2018 LA Film Festival – a fantastic event despite the technical difficulties.

She has that quality that draws you in...and these words still ring true! Larisa Martínez- Soprano and I are so happy to perform together today in honor of Anna Netrebko at The Metropolitan Opera Guild luncheon. A throwback to the 2007 BBC Proms when Anna sang "Ah! non credea mirarti" from La Sonnambula.
