ICA welcomes Rachel Barton Pine
08 Oct 2012
ICA is delighted to announce that American Violinist Rachel Barton Pine has joined its roster of artists for general management (excluding North America). A child prodigy, Rachel made her orchestral debut at the age of 7, performing the Haydn Violin Concerto in G Major with the Chicago String Ensemble. Ten years later she became the first American to win the coveted gold medal in the J.S. Bach International Competition in Leipzig – the first of many prizes that would follow.
Rachel Barton Pine is described by the Chicago Tribune as an artist who has everything “a big burnished tone; the brilliance, agility and precision of a bel canto diva. Above all, she has the knack for reaching out to an audience and holding them at awed attention in a manner all her own”
Rachel Barton Pine has performed with prestigious orchestras throughout the world including Chicago, Montreal, Vienna, Iceland and New Zealand Symphonies; the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Camerata Salzburg, Scottish and Israel Chamber Orchestra and the Netherlands Radio Kamer Filharmonie and at the Salzburg Festival. She has worked with conductors as Charles Dutoit, Zubin Mehta, Neeme Jarvi, Marin Alsop and Erich Leinsdorf.
International Classical Artists are delighted to welcome this exciting and inspirational artist to their roster.
"Rachel Barton Pine really may be the most charismatic, the most virtuosic, and the most compelling American violinist of her generation." All Music Guide.
