JOSHUA BELL
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $30-$100.

Few, if any, in the world of classical music enjoy the kind of fame that Joshua Bell does. Aside from the obvious — he's an astoundingly good violinist — Bell's fame rests on two of America's strongest cultural obsessions: youth and beauty. A Bloomington, Ind., native, Bell made his debut with that city's symphony orchestra at age 7. At 15, he was the youngest soloist to appear with the Philadelphia Orchestra. By 2000, fame firmly entrenched thanks to numerous TV appearances, film scoring and collaboration with genres outside of classical, he was named one of People's “50 most beautiful people.” On Wednesday, he joins former classmate David Itkin and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra for one performance. This is, without a doubt, the classical event of the year.
