Joshua Bell: At Home With Friends and Family Review and Giveaway {Ends 10/31}


Music has always been something that I have loved because it speaks to your heart.  I am very picky about what music I listen to and bring into my home.  I know that music affects your thinking, your mannerisms, and even your attitude so I want music that uplifts and encourages.

When I was asked to review Joshua Bell's newest CD, I was excited to have a new CD in our home that would be uplifting and encouraging.  I also know that what my children listen to does affect their development so I will gladly choose violin music over the normal kid, off-tune, wacky music. 

While I had never heard of Joshua Bell until One2One Network had contacted me, I really enjoyed his new CD, Joshua Bell At Home With Friends.

My favorite tracks are Cinema Paradiso and I Loves You Porgy.  There was only one track that I did not enjoy because of it's more contemporary sound.  I am prefer classical music and I believe that Joshua Bell, At Home with Friends CD perfectly captures this.  You will find this music is much different than your ordinary violin music in a great way! 

If you would like to purchase your own copy, you can purchase at your local store or online at Amazon.
