The Ladies’ Morning Musical Club presents

Rachel Barton Pine

In both art and life, violinist Rachel Barton Pine has an extraordinary ability to connect with people. She plays with passion and conviction across an extensive repertory, thrilling audiences with her dazzling technique, lustrous tone, and infectious joy in music-making. Her repertory ranges from traditional classical works to contemporary composers like the American Mohammed Fairouz and the Ghanian Kwabena Nketia. Her interests as well extend to period instrument practice (she also plays a Baroque violin and viola d’amore), rock and heavy metal. Pine’s prolific discography of 30 albums can be found on the Avie, Cedille, Warner Classics, Hänssler Classics, Naxos and Dorian labels. Pine holds prizes from several of the world’s leading competitions, including a gold medal at the 1992 J.S. Bach International Violin Competition in Leipzig. Other top awards have come from the Queen Elisabeth (Brussels, 1993), Kreisler (Vienna, 1992), Szigeti (Budapest, 1992), and Montreal (1991) International Violin Competitions. She performs on the Joseph Guarnerius del Gesù (Cremona 1742), known as the “ex-Bazzini, ex-Soldat”, on lifetime loan from her patron.
