The signature artist performs in partnership with one of the world's most legendary instruments, the Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius of 1720, said to have inspired the Academy award-winning film The Red Violin.
Elizabeth Pitcairn's burgeoning solo career brought her into the public eye on international concert stages after nearly three decades of rigorous training by the world's most esteemed violin teachers. Many have said that the violin has finally found its true soul mate in the gifted hands of the young violinist who is the first known solo artist to ever bring it to the great concert halls of the world, and who has made it her goal to share the violin's magical beauty of sound with people of all ages, professions and cultures. Today, Pitcairn and the Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius violin continue to foster one of classical music's most compelling partnerships.
The evening's program will include:
Beethoven Sonata No. 8 in G Major
Brahms Sonata No. 2 in A Major
Saint-Saëns Sonata in D minor, Op. 75
