Star violinist Rachel Barton Pine, who played a complete Mozart violin concerti in a single February 2012 night at the Mondavi Center, will appear at a fundraiser benefiting the Davis High School Baroque Ensemble’s upcoming summer trip to Italy, which will include performances in several cities. The fundraising concert will be at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 6, in the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St.

Pine actually will be performing on two instruments: the familiar violin (which has four strings), and the less-familiar viola d’amore, a now-rare instrument that has six or seven strings on top (depending on the maker), and seven “sympathetic” string below that vibrate when the upper strings are bowed or plucked. The viola d’amore was popular during the Baroque era.

On the violin, Pine will play selected works for solo violin by J.S. Bach, and the “Summer” concerto from the Vivaldi “Four Seasons” (accompanied by the DHS Baroque Ensemble). On the viola d’amore, she will play a suite by French composer Louis-Toussaint Milandre (who was a court musician for King Louis XV of France in the 1770s), and the Concerto in D Major (RV 392) for viola d’amore by Antonio Vivaldi (with the DHS Baroque Ensemble accompanying).

The ensemble also will play Vivaldi’s setting of “La Follia,” a lively dance tune with a melancholy twist that was wildly popular across Europe during the Baroque era.

The concert is free; donations in support of the summer trip to Italy will be accepted with gratitude. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds will go toward the Italy trip. There will be special VIP seating for donations of $250 and larger, and there will be a special dessert reception after the concert — with Pine and the members of DHS Baroque Ensemble attending — for donors giving $250 and up.

Pine also will be in the lobby after the concert, autographing CDs (which will be available for purchase).

Conductor Angelo Moreno, an orchestra teacher at DHS, said: “Having a world-class virtuoso like Rachel Barton Pine come to coach and perform with the Davis High School Baroque Ensemble is a dream come true for any student musician. When Rachel found out that Davis High had the only Baroque ensemble at the high school level in the public school system in the nation, she generously embraced the invitation to work with us, and in addition made herself available to be our featured soloist. Her virtuosic level of playing and expertise in the Baroque music world is unmatched and it will be a memorable concert experience for all musicians and audience goers alike.”

Moreno added: “Rachel will be performing both on violin and viola d’amore throughout the concert, demonstrating the virtuosic nature of music by Vivaldi, Bach and Milandre. Rachel is donating all of her time and resources to make this a benefit concert to support the Baroque Ensemble’s music tour to Italy summer of 2014. Her presence in Davis, I am sure, will be a great inspiration and motivation for these music students for years to come.”
