The album is violinist Pine's original concept, inspired by the birth of her first child in September 2011. She could find no existing collection of classical violin lullaby scores and or any compilation recordings. So, she set about gathering sheet music from libraries around the world, amassing a collection of 150 lullaby scores. She selected 25 of the best to include on Violin Lullabies.
The world's first lullabies were simple songs sung or hummed by mothers cradling their infants and rocking them to sleep. The classically composed concert pieces on Violin Lullabies represent stellar examples a special genre of 19th and early 20th century Romantic music written to evoke fond childhood memories and feelings of familial love. These brief, beautiful pieces are equally suited to classical connoisseurs as well as to music novices of all ages.
