 Violin Lullabies  Violin Lullabies
The album is violinist Rachel Barton Pine's original concept, inspired by the birth of her first child in September 2011. She could find no existing collection of classical violin lullaby scores and or any compilation recordings. So, she set about gathering sheet music from libraries around the world, amassing a collection of 150 lullaby scores. Recorded with Pine on violin and Matthew Hagle on piano, Violin Lullabies features 25 lullabies by some of the world’s greatest composers: Schubert, Fauré, Strauss and Ravel, including George Gershwin’s "Summertime " from Porgy and Bess and the famous "Brahms’s Lullaby."
 The Soviet Experience Volume lll  The Soviet Experience Volume lll
The Soviet Experience Volume III features Shostakovich’s String Quartets Nos. 9–12 from the 1960s. The Ninth Quartet’s five continuous movements build to a colossal finale. The Tenth has a classically balanced, four movement layout. The Eleventh’s seven continuous movements present a series of character sketches. The Twelfth brilliantly juxtaposes atonal and tonal themes to produce a cohesive and powerfully compelling whole. These quartets are paired with Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s adventurous, symphonic-scaled String Quartet No. 6 of 1946, an inventive work once banned in the Soviet Union for being ahead of its time. Weinberg was a close friend and colleague of Shostakovich.
