Joshua Bell and The Academy of St Martin in the Fields

So on Sunday I went to this concert that I had been wet-your-pants excited about for months. Joshua Bell (awesome violinist) who has a Stradivarius (awesome violin), playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E Minor (super amazing concerto) with The Academy of St Martin in the Fields (pretty damn perfect orchestra). They also played a couple of Beethoven masterpieces but the Mendelssohn was really the highlight for me. I. Just. Loved. It.

It was a couple of hours of classical music nerd heaven for me. Plus at the end I got to meet him!!
