Interview with WUOL's Alan Brandt

Johann Sebastian Bach's contributions to classical music are universally acknowledged and celebrated as among the most significant and profound. His contrapuntal writing continues to set the standard by which any musical composition is judged. Among the greatest examples of his mastery of counterpoint, the Six Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin are a cornerstone of every violinist's study and repertoire. Rachel Barton Pine is the only American gold medalist of the J.S. Bach International Violin Competition in Leipzig, Germany, an honor she won in 1992 at age 17. The quality of her scholarship and depth of her experience has continued to distinguish her interpretation of Bach's music.

WUOL: Louisville KY - Alan Brandt had the chance to talk to RBP and ask her about her musical journey with Bach and how her interpretation of his music has changed since she won the Bach Competition in 1992.
