Rachel Barton Pine is an American violinist. She debuted with the Chicago Symphony at age 10, and was the first American and youngest ever gold medal winner of the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition. The Washington Post wrote that she "displays a power and confidence that puts her in the top echelon."
Pine tours worldwide as a soloist with prestigious orchestras, has an active recording career, and has run The Rachel Elizabeth Barton Foundation since 2001 which provides services and funding to promote classical music education and performances.
Her taste in rock runs to heavy metal, with AC/DC, Anthrax, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Megadeth, Metallica, Motörhead, Pantera, Slayer, and Van Halen
being among her favorites.
The album (Violin Lullabies)
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. TRACKLIST:

Rachel Barton Pine hegedűs és Mike Bloc csellós tudja, milyen az amikor metal dalokat klasszikus hangszereken dolgozik fel az ember. A duó a Pantera ’Cowboys From Hell’ klasszikusát adja elő, ami azért is különleges, mert nem ragaszkodnak az eredeti verzióhoz. A dalt elég intenzív módon mutatják be.
