In a rescheduled performance on Wednesday, February 2nd, he lands at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Maryland, in a recital sponsored by Washington Performing Arts Society. Earlier, Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton caught up with Mr. Bell at his Manhattan home, where he was spending a few precious days with his 3-year-old son before heading back out on the road.
