With Rachel Barton Pine on Violin and Matthew Hagle on Piano, VIOLIN LULLABIES features lullabies by some of the world's greatest composers including: Schubert, Faure, Strauss, Ravel, Gershwin and Brahms. With 22 CDs under her belt and a thriving career, Pine who the the New York Times calls "a greatly gifted violinist" is a now also a recent mother who was so inspired by the birth of her child that she decided to record the 'definitive lullabies' CD.

"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." I wanted it to be organic and authentic, not dumbed down or jazzed up. These are just beautiful pieces of music, pure and simple.

The album is a hit at Radio with lots of airplay and Mothers Day promos. Stations are also using for their fund drives and seems like an item listeners want. On April 23 & 24 RBP spoke with Radio Stations and Networks about 'Violin Lullabies.'
