On Violin Lullabies, Rachel Barton Pine and pianist Matthew Hagle perform 25 classic cradle songs for violin, including works by Johannes Brahms, George Gershwin, Franz Schubert, Gabriel Fauré, Richard Strauss, and Maurice Ravel. Released on Cedille Records, these brief, beautiful pieces are as compositionally sophisticated as longer works by these same composers, and the music suits both hard core classical listeners as well as novices of all ages. "While the birth of my first child inspired this album, the idea of deeply exploring the lullaby as a genre has fascinated me for some time. These are beautiful concert pieces which allowed me to express the love that fills my heart each day that I spend with my precious baby,"  Rachel Barton Pine
