RE­TURN FROM OZ As the VSO’S charis­matic con­cert­mas­ter, Aussie vi­o­lin­ist Dale Barl­trop dis­played his mu­si­cian­ship al­most weekly. Since re­turn­ing to the South­ern Hemi­sphere, he’s been with the Aus­tralian String Quar­tet, and now he’s com­ing back. First up, the four­some will kick off Mu­sic on Main’s sea­son. Then it will per­form John Adams’s with the VSO. Af­ter that? ASQ joins the VSO on a bill with pi­ano vir­tu­oso Lang Lang. If you’re not a to­tal you’ll catch at least one.

The Aus­tralian String Quar­tet plays at Mu­sic on Main at the Or­pheum An­nex on Tues­day (Septem­ber 19); Septem­ber 22 and 23 with the VSO at the Or­pheum; and with the VSO and Lang Lang on Septem­ber 25.
