Joshua Bell: Estrellita

Joshua Bell performs Manuel Ponce's "Estrellita" during the 2007 BBC Proms at London's Royal Albert Hall.  Ponce, a Mexican composer, wrote the song in 1912. Subsequently, Estrellita, or My Little Star, was arranged for violin and piano by Jascha Heifetz. It is noteworthy that Joshua Bell is playing on a violin that once belonged to Bronislaw Huberman, a 300-year-old Stradivarius called the Gibson ex Huberman.
