Violinist Rachel Barton Pine — fondly recalled by Mondavi Center audiences for her February 2012 concert, in which she performed five Mozart violin concertos in a single evening — will appear twice in Sacramento next weekend.
On Saturday at 7:30 p.m., she will perform the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Sacramento Philharmonic at the Sacramento Community Center Theatre, 1301 L St. Tickets are $18-$114, available at tickets.com or 916-808-5181. The program also includes the Fourth Symphony of Johannes Brahms, and the recently composed Sonoma Overture by California composer Nolan Gasser.
On Sunday, Jan. 13, at 7:30 p.m., Pine will perform Chausson’s Concert for Violin, Piano and String Quartet with the Sacramento Chamber Music Society, led by longtime El Macero resident William Barbini. The concert, which will take place in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall on the Sacramento State campus, also will include works by Debussy, Suk and Smetana. Tickets are $30 general, $15 for students, available at www.cmssacto.org.
General admission to the Chamber Music Society’s concert will be reduced to $20 for patrons who present a ticket stub from Pine’s Saturday appearance with the Sacramento Philharmonic.
Ordinarily, the Sacramento Chamber Music Society also presents a Davis performance at Congregation Bet Haverim in addition to a Sac State performance, but for this special benefit concert there will be only a single performance at Sac State.
