Joshua Bell is like the emperor in his new clothes. I keep waiting for the boy who says - "he hasn't any clothes on!" His sound is stringy, stingy, narrow and cold and his intonation cannot be forgiven. Yet NPR and other critics who should be guarding the classical musician fortress have turned belly-up in praise for this extremely mediocre violinist. No wonder no one stopped in the subway! Hail to the common ear.
