Famed violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn with "Red Mendelssohn" Stradivarius (1721) plays Op. 14 Samuel Barber Violin Concerto with TOCCATA Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, James Rawie, Conducting. Concert Master Virginia Bowman plays the EL Weigand UNR Stradivarius (1720). Two Strads of same vintage in the same concert, a very rare event indeed! Donna Axton, pianist, expertly provides the accompaniment. The wild Gypsy "Czardas" by Vittorio Monti was performed as an encore. Performed at the Trinity Episcopal Church, Reno, Nevada 09-17-2010
