      A duo of great versatility and of celebrated interpretations, violinist Rachel Barton Pine and pianist Matthew Hagle are praised for thrilling audiences with dazzling ensemble, razor-sharp technique and infectious joy. The duo has released two records on the Cedille label and have toured throughout North and South America. Throughout the 2019-2020 Season, Pine will perform in Singapore, Glasgow, Tel Aviv, Seattle and New York. Through the Rachel Barton Pine Foundation, she recently released "Music by Black Composers," a series of pedagogical books exclusively containing music by Black composers. Hailed by Clavier Magazine for his "rare clarity and sweetness", Matthew Hagle is sought after by artists of international acclaim including Avalon Quartet, Parker Quartet and the Chicago Symphony.

      In their collaboration at The Clarice, the acclaimed duo will kick-off with the music of previously overlooked Caribbean composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Born in Guadeloupe to an enslaved plantation worker, Bologne was among the first composers to write string quartets upon relocating to France. Bologne’s music is presented along Romantic composers Beethoven and Brahms. William Grant Still, the "Dean" of African-American composers, was the first American composer to have an opera produced by the legendary New York City Opera. Still, who has been among Pine’s longtime favorite composers, closes this program. About Pine’s performance of Still, critic Norman Lebrecht says “Rachel Barton Pine at her most expressive, and William Grant Still’s Suite for Violin and Piano is thrillingly accomplished, rooted in music of the Deep South but distinctively shaped”
