 Celebrated International Artist Elizabeth Pitcairn and the Red Violin  to perform May 5th, 2017. 

She returns as a reprise to her “standing room only” performance to the University of Szeged, Faculty of Music on May 5th, 2017 at 19:00 in the Fricsay Concert hall.

Celebrated violin virtuoso Elizabeth Pitcairn performs in partnership with the legendary 1720 Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius, the 1990 Christie’s auction of which is said to have inspired the 1999 Academy Award-winning film, “The Red Violin.”

The historic violin was crafted in 1720 by Antonio Stradivari, who lovingly made his instruments in his small shop in Cremona, Italy centuries ago, and remains the most famous violin maker of all time. Not long after its creation, the instrument appeared to vanish; no one knows where or to whom the violin belonged for more than 200 years, spawning any number of historians, writers, journalists, critics as well as Canadian filmmaker, Francois Girard, to speculate on the violin’s mysterious history. 

Ms. Pitcairn will be teaching a Master Class on May 4th at the Faculty of music, as well
