Over the past four years, Joshua Bell has remodeled his Manhattan home to accommodate musical soirees--eclectic gatherings of musicians, actors, literary figures and others who convene for the sheer joy of sharing their art in an informal setting. Joshua's newest album for SONY Classical, "At Home With Friends," celebrates these livingroom gatherings with works by composers including Ravi Shankar, Edvard Grieg, George Gershwin and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
