To hear the tones bouncing from violinist Joshua Bell's strings is an experience in and of itself. To see the sweat form on his brow (and his vivaciousness guarantees a bit of sweat now and again) is part of the joy of watching a classical musician who is unabashedly in love with what he does. Last night at the Verbier Festival, he was paired with acclaimed pianist Yuja Wang for a performance of Schumann and Beethoven.

Where we attended Glyndebourne Opera Festival last week, we've now made our way to France for the Verbier Festival. The remainder of the festival will see classical virtuosos taking the stage to perform Brahms, Bach, Mozart, and Chopin with distinct fervor. You do have to create an account to continue watching for free and for unrestricted amounts of time, but it is a quick and painless process - not to mention one that's free of charge.
