Watching violinist Joshua Bell perform always raises a flurry of questions. How does he manage to make his mop of brown hair fly three inches off his head? Does he get huge headaches from shaking his head so much when he plays? If his sweat were to fall onto his 300-year-old Strad, how much would each drop depreciate the value of his violin? Bell, the showman violinist, probably won’t reveal any of his secrets, ever. It’s unfortunate, because we also wanted to know how he makes the double stop runs in Tchaikovsky’s Concerto in D Major sound effortless.
