Biography

Born: October 11, 1974 in Chicago, IL   Country: USA   Period: 20th/21st Centuries
Rachel Barton Pine is a popular violinist who enjoyed a meteroic rise in the 1990s after becoming the first American to capture the gold medal at the Leipzig, Germany-based J.S. Bach International Competition (1992), and following it up with a bronze medal at the 1993 Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels. But her rapid ascent was temporarily stalled when she was seriously injured in an accident in 1995. She resumed her career two years later Read more with a fairly busy schedule of concert appearances and recordings. Her repertory is broad, encompassing not only Baroque to modern music, but taking in folk, jazz, and rock, particularly heavy metal. Pine has made numerous recordings, most of them appearing on the Cedille and Dorian labels. Born on October 11, 1974, in Chicago, Rachel Barton (Pine was added following her 2004 marriage) began playing the violin at age three, and at seven gave her first public concert when she appeared with the Chicago String Ensemble. She made her debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at 10. She had an impressive roster of teachers: Roland and Almita Vamos, Ruben Gonzalez, Elmira Darvarova, and Werner Scholz.

After her competition successes in the early '90s, Pine was soon in demand. Her first recording, Homage to Sarasate, was issued on the Dorian label in 1994 and received much critical acclaim. The following year Pine was in a train accident that resulted in the loss of one leg and severe injury to the other.

Following her recovery and rehabilitation, Pine quickly became active on the concert scene, regularly appearing with major American orchestras, including the Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, and Baltimore, and with many of the leading conductors: Mehta, Leinsdorf, Dutoit, and Neeme Järvi. Her first recording following her accident was the Dorian CD entitled Franz Liszt: Works For Violin and Piano, which featured pianist Thomas Labé.

In 2001 Pine founded the Rachel Elizabeth Barton Foundation to expand interest in classical music. In 2005 she appeared on the radio program Saint Paul Sunday Morning, on which she premiered Augusta Read Thomas' Rush, a work specifically written for her. Pine has also appeared on the Today Show and CBS Sunday Morning. Among her recordings is the 2007 Cedille CD entitled American Virtuosa: Tribute to Maud Powell, which features works by Dvorák, Grainger, Burleigh, and others, which were previously recorded by Powell, a legendary female American violinist.
