About the Show

This year’s popular celebration of Jewish music features one of the most acclaimed classical violinists of her generation, Rachel Barton Pine.  Pine whose incredible range of work spans classical, to klezmer, to heavy metal holds prizes from several of the world's leading competitions, including a gold medal at the 1992 J.S. Bach International Violin Competition in Leipzig, Germany. Other top awards came from the Queen Elisabeth (Brussels, 1993), Kreisler (Vienna, 1992), Szigeti (Budapest, 1992) and Montreal (1991) International Violin Competitions, and many national and regional competitions. She won prizes for her interpretation of the Paganini Caprices at both the Szigeti Competition and the 1993 Paganini International Violin Competition in Genoa.  Today she performs as a lead soloist with symphonies around the globe.

 

L’Dor V’Dor:  will feature Jewish Classical Music of the 19th to 21st Centuries.  Although the Jewish musical tradition is among the oldest in Europe, there remained a dearth of Jewish influence on European classical music. This dramatically changed in the 19th century, when many Jewish composers and performers began to cross over to the classical music world -- transforming it forever.  The late 19th century through the eve of WW II is peppered with the names of great Jewish classical violinists ranging from Bronislaw Huberman to Efrem Zimbalist. Virtuoso violinist Rachel Barton Pine will present a program of Jewish classical music ranging from Bloch's "Baal Shem Suite" to Achron's "Hebrew Melody."  She will also Yale Strom's "Bessarabia" suite for solo violin.

 

The program will also feature Ms. Barton Pine joining illustrious Festival favorites Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi in presenting klezmer music with scintillating improvisation and virtuosic technique.

 

Opening the program will be the talented singers of the San Diego Jewish Men’s choir under the direction of Ruth Weber who will be performing selections from their upcoming newest CD.

 


6:30pm – Pre-show surround event featuring Rachel Barton Pine and Yale Strom speaking about her courageous story and the different ways she takes classical to other musical forms.
