Concertmaster Dale Barltrop makes his VSO solo debut

Saturday & Monday, October 23rd & 25th, 8pm, Orpheum

VSO Concertmaster Dale Barltrop performs Schumann's Violin Concerto in his VSO solo debut. Robert Schumann is counted amongst the great Romantic composers, and the year 2010 marks the 200th anniversary of his birth. About the work, Barltrop says: "I'm delighted to be introducing this beautiful work to Vancouver audiences this month. It is music that is tragic, poetic, exuberant and deeply personal." This concerto was the last major work of Schumann's stormy life and career, and Barltrop goes on to say, "I believe that it holds a very special place in the violin literature; not because it's your typical concerto blockbuster, but because it is a window into the soul of a tortured artist." Renowned conductor Günther Herbig conducts.
