WRCJ: Detroit / Interview with Chris Felcyn

In connection with Mozart's birthday on January 27, Billboard chart-topping violinist Rachel Barton Pine has released the five Mozart Violin Concertos and the Sinfonia Concertante K364 with Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. The two-album debuts on AVIE records set also features the recording debut of violist Matthew Lipman.

"She is one of the most honest of violin players I have ever heard.  And it's a great attraction in this [project], there is no utter embellishment, everything is there for a purpose and musically speaking it makes such good sense with her," said Sir Neville about the collaboration.  WRCJ: Detroit - Chris Felcyn sat down with Rachel to discuss the project.
