21. Barton - Brahms/Joachim Concertos
in D, Op 77. rachel barton, violinist; Chicago Symphony Orch/CarlosKalmar, cond. CEDILLE 900000 068 (F) (DDD) TT 4715 4320.
JOACHIM: Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Op. 11 "In the Hungarian Style." BRAHMS: Violin Concerto in D, Op 77.
Rachel Barton, violinist; Chicago Symphony Orch/Carlos Kalmar, cond.
Brahms began composing his violin concerto in 1878 and collaborated with Joachim closely, asking him to "correct it." He also dedicated it to his great friend. Originally the concerto had two middle movements (like the second piano concerto Brahms began composing about the same time), but these were removed and replaced with a new Adagio . Apparently Brahms incorporated most of Joachim's changes in the orchestral part but, surprisingly, considerably fewer of his revisions to the solo violin part. Joachim composed the first movement cadenza; in this recording as an appendix Barton includes her own cadenza as an alternate which easily can be programmed into the performance. Rachel Barton's performances of both works are elegant, technically secure and beautiful in tone. Needless to say, the Chicago Symphony offers superb support under Carlos Kalmar who is principal conductor of Chicago's Grant Park Orchestra and music director of the Oregon Symphony. James Ginsburg produced the recording which was made July 2 and 3, 2002 in Orchestra Hall. Ginsburg and his team have provided splendid, well-balanced, rich sound. Cedille is to be commended for this issue, which offers splendid performances of two major concertos, two CDs for the price of one. Highly Recommended!

Rachel Barton and Sibbi Bernhardsson to Perform Little-Known Works and Celebrated Masterpieces, Wednesday, March 1, 8 P.M., in Kulas Recital Hall Story by Claire Chase RELATED The Program Two former students of Almita and Roland Vamos - violinist Rachel Barton and Sibbi Berhardsson , visiting assistant instructor of violin - will perform their first-ever duo violin recital on Wednesday, March 1, 8 p.m., in Kulas Recital Hall. The program will feature a combination of little-known repertoire and celebrated masterpieces, including works for two violins by Schnittke, Ysaye, Telemann, Peter Jaffe, Mark O'Connor and Prokofiev. The performance is free and open to the public. "This program runs through the entire emotional spectrum, from light to heavy and intensely dramatic to comical," remarks Bernhardsson. "We will begin with Schnittke's Praeludium, which was written as a memory of Shostakovich, and has a very dark, funeral march undertone. This work can be played by either two violins or by one violin with tape. For this reason the piece has a somewhat mechanical aspect, but it's very engaging. Eugene Ysaye was most famous for his six solo violin works, and this duo sonata is like the solo sonatas in its contrasts ranging from impressionistic Ravel-esque textures to intensely romantic, thick emotional qualities. It's a beautiful piece, very typical Ysaye, full of lyricism.

Violinist Rachel Barton Special to the Savannah Morning News Rachel Barton performs on Saturday with SSO
Savannah Morning News Violinist Rachel Barton will perform with the Savannah Symphony Orchestra on Saturday.
Originally scheduled to perform with the SSO on that date was German soprano Susanne Bernhard. According to the SSO, Bernhard has been offered a lead role with a European opera company that conflicted with her scheduled appearance with the orchestra.
"Miss Bernhard is one of the rising young stars of the operatic world in Europe," says the SSO's Executive Director, Paul Chambers. "She was offered a unique opportunity, that is wonderful for her career. Though we are extremely sorry that she will not be appearing with our orchestra, we did not want her contractual obligation here to stand in the way of her very promising future."
Barton, whose previous two appearances with the SSO have been avidly received, will perform Mozart's "Violin Concerto No. 3 in G Major." The orchestra, under the direction of Philip Greenberg, will also perform Mozart's overture to "La Clemenza di Tito" and Tchaikovsky's "Mozartiana" Suite.
The concert will begin at 8 p.m. at the Johnny Mercer Theater. Single Tickets are available and start as low as $15.00.

Rock violinist returns for colourful concerts with the NZSO
The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra presents concerts featuring virtuoso American Violinist Rachel Barton who wowed New Zealand audiences in 2000. Since her NZ debut she has performed her variations on the New Zealand National Anthem as an encore all over America.
The first concert, as part of the Great Classics series, has musical colour from Latin America, Rachel Barton with Beethoven's great violin concerto plus Bartok's magnificent showpiece, Concerto for Orchestra. This concert will be performed in Wellington, Hawke's Bay, Hamilton and Auckland, conducted by Roberto Minzuk who will make his New Zealand debut.
NZ composer David Farquhar's Evocation is followed by the powerful rhythms and melodic styles of the folk music of north-eastern Brazil in Villa Lobos' work Bachianas Brasileiras - Preludio. Beethoven's Violin Concerto is accepted as one of his most gracious and masterful works, and has become one of the most important works in the violin repertoire.

Not water, fire. After smoking the cigars (using fire to light them, of course) the man figured he had an ingenious claim against the insurance company and filed for damages. If only every case could go so well. Unfortunately, the torch has been passed on to younger, fresher talent, in order to insure disorder in the court for years to come. The rookie of the year? Rachel Barton. - University of Chicago law professor Richard Epstein On Jan. 16, 1995, renowned violinist Rachel Barton boarded a Metra train to Winnetka, where she gave private lessons. An occasional rider of the train, Barton brought with her four separate items: a lunch bag; a purse; a book bag; and an Amati violin, aged over three centuries and worth around half a million dollars. - Juror Lisa Dixon Perhaps the jury got a lesson in courtroom etiquette from Barton herself: After the victory, the violinist promised court clerks and bailiffs a private concert. The offer has yet to be denied. Talk about taking sides.

Once we have made those decisions, there is no turning back. No second chance to rethink, to analyzes or to hope that the decisions we made was for the best. While you may think you have all the time in the world, in reality, time has already passed. Last week, I was reading a front page story in the Chicago Sun-Times that caught my attention. The story was about Rachel Barton, a violinist who was awarded a large sum of money ($29.6 million to be exact) from a Cook County jury for injuries she suffered while riding a Metra train in 1995. While I was a little surprise by the amount she received, the biggest detail left unanswered about this accident was why did it happen. I'm sure you know the whole story by now, so ut yourself in her place for a moment. You have four bags, a purse, a food bag, a book bag and a violin case, weighing maybe 70 plus pounds or so. You're in a hurry to get off the train so you head toward the nearest door. The doors open, you get off and you notice that one of your bags is caught on the vertical support bars so you turn around and you: A. Try to unhook the bag before the door closes and the train leaves. B. Say something like "Blah", leave the bag behind and go on your way. Or C, stop readjust the bag on your shoulder while looking back to see what the problem is and hesitate before you make your next move.
