Interview with Rachel Barton Pine
Full Program 3.25.2018

Rachel Barton Pine's debut of Elgar & Bruch Violin Concertos, recorded with Maestro Andrew Litton and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, marks her 36th recording and fourth album on Avie records (AV 2375). Pine calls the Elgar & Bruch Violin Concertos an "indulgence in Romanticism." This project is the first time that the shortest of the Romantic violin concertos frequently performed in concert (Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26) has been recorded with the longest (the Elgar Violin Concerto in B Minor, Op. 61). While Pine counts the Menuhin album of Bruch and Elgar as inspiration, it features two performances recorded in sessions many years apart paired together on a reissue.

University of Winnipeg Radio's John Iverson spoke with RBP about the new album for his  program. Listen to the attached conversation, or the entire March 25, 2018 show.
