 Exquisite introduction to classical music January 24, 2014
By R. Bennett Villard (Boyce, LA) -- See All My Reviews
I ordered two copies of this CD, one for me (because I love classical music) and one for my daughter-in-law who is expecting her second child. She intends to use her copy in her pregnancy belly band, which plays music for the unborn baby in the womb. She did this with her first pregnancy as well, for which I also sent appropriate music. I love the idea of introducing classics to a child at such an early age, and the Violin Lullabies CD is perfect for this purpose. Report Abuse

 Lovely collection of short Violin lullabies June 10, 2013
By Warren Harris -- See All My Reviews
This CD is a collection of lullabies performed by Rachel Barton Pine (violin) and Matthew Hagle (piano). The disc is lovely from start to finish, but particularly attention grabbing are Frolov’s Concert Fantasio on Gershwin’s Summertime, Manuel de Falla’s Nana (No. 5 from Siete canciones populares espanolas), Faure’s Berceuse (Op. 16), Schubert’s Wiegenlied (D. 498 – this is just *gorgeous*), Durosoir’s Berceuse (No. 4, from Cinq Aquarelles), Mikhail Antsev’s Berceuse (No. 1, from Four Pieces), Victor Beraud’s Petite Reine Berceuse (Lullaby for a Little Queen – this is sooooo sweet!), and William Grant Still’s Mother and Child (No. 2 from Suite for Violin and Piano). The collection closes with Max Reger’s wonderful Wiegenlied (Cradle Song – No.l from Drei Kompositienen, Op. 79d). Ms. Pine does a marvelous job on the violin, and her performance is warm and refreshing. Matthew Hagle accompanies on piano, and he too has a fine balance with the violin, each combining together to form a delightful whole. This is just fundamentally good music making, and the material is soothing and very special. While I don’t normally go in for collections, this one is worth acquiring. Highly recommended.

 Delightful!!!!! This one is not to be missed!! May 2, 2013
By J. Leigh (GLENVIEW, IL) -- See All My Reviews
I just purchased (5/2/13) this CD for my daughter and her new baby for Mother's Day. Shhhh! And....I bought one for myself! Rachel, accompanied by Matthew, has curated a sublime set of Berceuses. So many new and rediscovered composers and works have been researched and what a learning experience for these lesser known gems. So appealing. Fans of Rachel will realize how passionate she is about this album. Her love shines through. I'm going to play it again now! Report Abuse
