She has recorded 25 albums, her most recent CD, Violin Lullabies, recorded with pianist Matthew Hagle, debuted at number one on the Billboard classical chart.
While she regularly plays baroque, renaissance, and medieval music, Rachel Barton Pine also performs rock and heavy metal music with her band Earthen Grave. She has jammed with the likes of Slash of Guns N’ Roses and other rock and metal stars.
The program for this concert includes the Brahms Violin Concerto. Pine recorded the Brahms Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Carlos Kalmar.
