Over the last few days, violinist Joshua Bell has received a prestigious award, earned lots of press after busking in a Washington, DC Metro station and packed his bags for a European tour with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

Minnesota Public Radio's Julie Amacher had a chance to talk with Bell about his last few days, plus a new CD release coming out this fall, featuring John Corigliano's "Red Violin" Concerto.
