Notes & Reviews:

Rachel Barton Pine's disc of Celtic-flavored works is the first to present Bruch's beloved Scottish Fantasy in an insightful and virtuosic interpretation that highlights its Scottish roots. The album also features Sarasate's Airs Ecossais and two pieces by Scottish composers: Mackenzie's Pibroch Suite and McEwen's Scottish Rhapsody "Prince Charlie." Pine's own Medley of Scots Tunes, arranged and performed with famed Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser, is also included, as is a bonus video on the making of Scottish Fantasies. "Everything about this release by violinist Rachel Barton Pine is exceptional, from the selection of couplings to the performances themselves without a doubt, this is one of the smartest and most purely lovable releases of the year." - ClassicsToday, Disc of the Month, August 2005
