Renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine has released her 36th album, recorded with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Andrew Litton. The new release features Romantic concertos by Sir Edward Elgar and Max Bruch.
Pine dedicates this album to “the memory of a musical hero and generous friend, Sir Neville Marriner.” After collaborating with Sir Neville on her album of Mozart Concertos, they planned to reunite on this recording before his passing. Andrew Litton stepped in and Pine adds, “I’m incredibly grateful to Andrew Litton for doing such an excellnt job. Our recording is faithful to 99% of what’s in print, and yet the music feels inspired, it is singing through all of us.”
Here’s my recent discussion with Rachel about the new album.
Yours in good music,
