The violinist's new album pairs Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No 1 with a new work by Earl Maneein
Rachel Barton Pine's new album pairs Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No 1 with a new work by Earl Maneein called Dependent Arising, a heavy metal-influenced concerto written especially for her. In this week's Gramophone Podcast the violinist tells Editor Martin Cullingford about the recording, and explores some of the links between the two genres of music, classical and heavy metal. The album - called Dependent Arising - for which Rachel Barton Pine is joined by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conductor Tito Muñoz, is available from Cedille from today.
