Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Best-selling violinist Rachel Barton Pine's relationship with the music of Bach runs deep. She first heard and fell in love with Bach's music in her hometown St. Paul's Church in Chicago, which had a stained glass window of the composer in the sanctuary. That church is where Rachel first played Bach's music, at the age of four, and where she returned to record Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas in its beautiful yet clear acoustic. Rachel says, 'I'm so pleased to have recorded the Six Sonatas and Partitas in my favorite sound space for these works, the place that I consider to truly be my emotional home for playing them.'

Bravura technique and soulful musicianship. --New York Times

An exciting, boundary-defying performer. --Washington Post

Rachel Barton Pine really may be the most charismatic, the most virtuosic, and the most compelling American violinist of her generation. --All Music Guide

Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
There is a surprisingly striking contrast between its crystalline voicing, clear articulation and warm tone that makes the listener feel that it is concerned with the plain and simple beauty of the music as much as with the genius of its counterpoint and relationships between movements.
