Rachel Barton Pine Performing Live at the Maryland Theatre
“Barton is the real thing, a prodigious talent with obvious personality and a clear-eyed vision. Her technical skills can make the jaw drop. She has a full, singing sweet tone and plays with a confidence and élan that make an audience’s heart soar.” Chicago Sun-Times

In addition to the Shostakovich: Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 77, the program includes the Bartok: “Concerto for Orchestra.”
Described by The Washington Post as a “boundary-defying performer” who has been featured on programs including “PBS Newshour,” “The Today Show,” “NBC Network News,” “Making a Difference” and “CBS Sunday Morning,” Pine began violin studies at age three and made her professional debut at age seven.
Today she is renowned as a leading interpreter of the great classical masterworks who has appeared as a soloist with many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, including the Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, Dallas, Baltimore, Montreal, Vienna, New Zealand and Iceland symphonies, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. She has also performed with Germany’s Göttinger Symphonie Orchester, France’s Orchestre de Bertagne, the Sacramento and New Mexico Philharmonics, and City Music Cleveland.
Pine has a prolific discography of 30 CDs on the Avie, Cedille, Warner Classics and Dorian labels. Pine began an exploration of beloved violin concertos and the concertos that inspired them with Brahms and Joachim Violin Concertos, recorded with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Carlos Kalmar. Her Beethoven & Clement Violin Concertos, recorded with The Royal Philharmonic and conducted by José Serebrier, offered the world premiere recording of Clement’s D Major Violin Concert.
