Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Billboard chart-topping violinist Rachel Barton Pine joins forces with Germany's distinguished Göttinger Symphonie Orchester and its acclaimed principal conductor, Christoph-Mathias Mueller, to present Mendelssohn's celebrated violin concerto alongside the great, though lesser-known, concerto by Robert Schumann, plus Beethoven's elegant Romances for violin and orchestra. When the artists performed the Schumann in concert, they found the collaboration a revelatory experience. So they reconvened to record this program for listeners everywhere, with the invaluable help of multiple Grammy award-winning producer Steven Epstein.

"The Mendelssohn is one of those fiddle war horses that every young soloist plays but few can play as beautifully as [Pine]. Without resorting to any musical distortion, she invested the thrice-familiar phrases with a lyrical grace that seemed newly minted." — Chicago Tribune on Pine in concert
