From The Daily Beast:

A child prodigy, Rachel Barton Pine was already playing violin with professional orchestras at 7. A life-threatening accident didn’t stop her from achieving international success.

Pine’s life is a seemingly unending list of extraordinary achievements, from her soloist debut at age 10 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to her recent live performances of Paganini’s ‘24 Caprices For Solo Violin’--a series of virtuosic pieces so technically challenging that very few violinists perform them in sequence. She has published a book of her own arrangements and cadenzas, recorded 24 albums, and travelled with the world’s most prestigious ensembles.Read more...
