Glenn Dicterow on the Role of the Concertmaster

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - 01:11 PM

Violinist Glenn Dicterow has been a concertmaster or associate concertmaster in major symphony orchestras for nearly forty years, thirty of which have been at the New York Philharmonic.  As part of our month-long ViolinFest, Jeff Spurgeon sat down with Dicterow at the start of his thirty-first season to talk about what a concertmaster does, about the instrument he wields, and about what he’s looking forward to at the Philharmonic this year.


Glenn Dicterow is a featured soloist with the New York Philharmonic this season, performing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in November, and the Szymanowski Violin Concerto in March. He’ll also be a part of Philharmonic Ensemble performances in December and March.

Kudos to Concert Master and genuine master of the violin, GLENN DICTEROW !!! The fact that Dicterow will perform the Tschaikovski Violin Concerto and the Szymanovski Violin Concerto as THE soloist in both with the New York Philharmonic proves his talent goes far beyond that of merely an outstanding member of the orchestra.
