Our opening program features three works for violin, Henri Vieuxtemps’Violin Concerto No. 5 – a delightfully classical work - followed by Saint-Saëns’ tour de force, his Introduction and Rondo capriccioso, and the rarely heard, Concerto for Violin and Viola by Benjamin Britten. Rachel Barton Pine delighted us in the early 2000s, and has a commanding stage presence.
