Rachel Barton Pine

Testament: Complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin by J.S. Bach

 
Pre-Concert Talk
Dave Beck, Classical KING FM 98.1
1:30 PM // Nordstrom Recital Hall

Revel in Rachel Barton Pine’s incomparable mastery of J.S. Bach’s unaccompanied violin works. Fanfare calls her “One of the rare mainstream performers with a total grasp of Baroque style and embellishment”. Pine premiered with the Chicago Symphony at age 10 and has won countless accolades in both modern and baroque violin throughout her 30-year career. Read the program note written by Pine. Experience Pine’s magnetic artistry and how it illuminates Bach’s sonatas and partitas, the pinnacle of the Baroque period.

 
“What Pine communicated was pure Bach, his pleasure in working out musical ideas, his architectural structures large and small and his reverence for both the struggle and the peace that music can offer.” -The Washington Post
