Check out this Mojo.com video perf and chat with Violinist Rachel Barton Pine. This child prodigy who started played at the age of three and made her solo debut at age seven, has worked with some of the greatest names in Classical Music including: Erich Leinsdorf, Placido Domingo and Charles Dutoit to name a few. Hailed as the most charismatic, the most virtuosic, and the most compelling American violinist of her generation, Ms. Pine can also reel off a list of her favorite rock bands -- AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Anthrax, Metallica, Pantera, Van Halen, Slayer and Megadeth, and can talk about these bands as readily. She also sees the connecting threads in these very disparate musical forms making a connecting bridge between generations of music fans.
