The Romani people have long been recognized for their role as entertainers and musicians all over Europe. The dazzling virtuosity and intoxicating rhythms of Eastern European Romani music that fascinated so many 19th and 20th-century composers can be traced back to Hungarian, Romanian and Russian sources. In the film The Red Violin, the famous instrument makes an important stop with a nomadic Roma group. Join the CCO string quartet, with CCO music director Eckart Preu at the keyboard, and sensational violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn in an intimate afternoon of exotic music performed on the Red Violin that inspired the film. Visit the Museum before the concert to take a specially-crafted tour led by a museum docent showcasing works from the museum’s collection that tie to the journey of the violin from the film. Visitors will meet at the Fath Auditorium (ground level).
