Rachel Barton Pine


The latest from violinist Rachel Barton Pine is some of the most challenging violin repertoire to perform. You wouldn't realize it with the ease that Pine tosses it off, or by the singing lines she brings to Niccolo Paganini's music. Bel Canto Paganini dazzles and soothes the listener. WBAA's John Clare spoke to Rachel about her 35th recording.


Johann Sebastian Bach is very highly regarded by musicians and music lovers alike.
