Pro Arte opens its season by welcoming back Arturo Delmoni, who delighted Pro Arte audiences in the 2006-7 season, to perform the legendary violin concerto in his stylish, elegant interpretations, which have earned him critical acclaim in the United States and abroad. Delmoni made his debut at Carnegie Hall at age 14 playing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Little Orchestra Society under Thomas Scherman.  Since then he has been soloist with the St. Louis, Dallas, Spokane, Jupiter, El Paso, Glendale and Tucson Symphony Orchestras; the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Boston, the California Chamber Symphony, the New York City Ballet Orchestra; the Rhode Island, Brooklyn, Boston, Omaha and Kansas City Philharmonics; and the Boston Pops.  He has appeared as a recitalist throughout the United States and in Europe, the Middle East, Japan and Hong Kong.  As a chamber musician, Delmoni has performed with illustrious colleagues such as Pinchas Zukerman, Andres Cardenes, Elmar Oliveira, Emanuel Ax, Nathaniel Rosen, Jon Kimura Parker, Jeffery Kahane and Dudley Moore.

Delmoni is “an enormously gifted musician and an impeccable violinist. His playing style is unique, and his gorgeous sound is reminiscent of that of great violinists from a bygone era.” Yo-yo Ma

“Delmoni’s playing always goes right to the heart, and his charisma is irresistible.” Glenn Dicterow, Concertmaster, New York Philharmonic

“The growing discography of Arturo Delmoni testifies to a musician who must possess an artistic soul of exceptional beauty.  Each new issue reveals additional aspects of a winsome musical personality and verifies an impression of great warmth and geniality.” Alan Heatherington, American Record Guide
