Watch Rachel Barton Pine pair Brahms and Metallica / CLASSIC fM

Bookmark and Share

Rachel Barton Pine has spent almost her entire life with a violin tucked under her chin. The 43-year-old violin virtuoso first fell in love with the instrument at age 3, performed on stage with the Chicago Symphony at age 10 and today travels the world playing solo violin with some of the world's best orchestras. But besides being a fan of classical composers like Mozart and Bach, Pine is also a headbanger. Here she is playing an arrangement she prepared for Metallica's "One." She also played what you might call "metal violin" for years in the Chicago band Earthen Grave, which has since disbanded.
