ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Guest artist Elizabeth Pitcairn was stunning in her performance of John Corigliano's The Red Violin: Chaconne for Violin and Orchestra. Pitcairn is an expressive musician who plays with a beautiful rich tone. Pitcairn treated the audience to an encore of Gypsy Airs by Pablo de Sarasate. Again, she demonstrated glorious tone in all registers. Her great flair and bravura warmed the evening." Gregory H. Largent, The Saginaw News, 2/20/06

"Ms. Pitcairn is a beautiful presence in my Chaconne, with a performance that is very much her own." John Corigliano, Composer 6/30/05

"Pitcairn’s tone, so full without being forced and her more than ample bow technique (with a spiccato that ranks with the best) allow her to use the notes as tools to the inner music rather than ends in themselves. This approach of art before flash is as welcome as it is rare in concert life currently. "
James Wegg Review: Pitcairn performing the Tchaikovsky Concerto at the McCallum Theater Bob Hope Cultural Center, Palm Desert, CA 1/12/03

"[Joshua] Bell, who played the music in the movie [The Red Violin], gave the world premier of that work in 1997 with the San Francisco Symphony. Elizabeth Pitcairn played the Southern California premiere in 2000 at an outdoor concert with Victor Vener, and his enterprising California Philharmonic." Los Angeles Times 5/8/04

"The Red Violin came through with flying colors. Of course, it was in the hands of a world-class soloist who could probably make music out of a cigar box." The Press Enterprise 1/13/2004

"Elizabeth Pitcairn was the guest in a perfectly sweet Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending." The Philadelphia Inquirer 4/10/03

"Saturday's Brahms Double was the highlight of the evening. Violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn and cellist Ronald Leonard...their playing was strongly compatible." Newark Star Ledger 2/11/02

"From the opening thematic statement, (Mendelssohn Concerto), Pitcairn demonstrated her full lucid tone and technical ease."
Los Angeles Times 4/27/01

"Pitcairn is a brilliant young musician." The Hamilton Spectator 8/7/01

"Pitcairn's playing was sweet of tone but always intense and passionate." Gazette Reviewer 8/10/01

"The cadenzas from The Red Violin were tackled by Elizabeth Pitcairn with a concentrated intensity." Los Angeles Times 7/31/00

"We recognize violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn who performed with New West Symphony, dazzling us with her solo on Scheherazade.
Los Angeles Times 11/24/00

"Pitcairn's performance was outstanding. The expertise in which she respected the prosody of the score, (The Red Violin), revealed its haunting harmonic schemes. Onstage she expressed passion, poise and confidence."
Celebrations 8/5/00

"Community Foundation recital was a huge success. Visiting violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn and pianist Estela Kersenbaum-Olevsky gave first-class performances of music by Bach, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky."
Anguilla Daily News 1/18/00
