More Details:

  • Levin’s 2004 Blur is a fun jolt to the system—full of big percussion.
  • Joshua Bell’s concerts always sell out, but the most talked-about gig of his career remains his undercover busking at a Washington, DC metro stop.
  • Brahms Symphony No. 2 is sunny and warm and has one of the most electrifying endings in all of classical music.
