4.0 out of 5 stars Latin music for solo violin, with a surprise ending Nov. 10 2011
By Dean Frey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In Rachel Barton Pine's new disc of solo violin music this highly talented musician presents a variety of pieces from Spain and Latin America. Some of the music was written for the violin, both practice pieces and show-pieces written to show off the violinist's virtuosity. As well, there are arrangements of music originally written for guitar. Two well-known works in the latter category stand out. Barton Pine's own version of Albeniz's great Asturias (Leyenda) is very impressive, though I find Francisco Tarrega's Recuerdos de la Alhambra (in Ruggiero Ricci's arrangement) fits less well on the violin. Both pieces are played here with precision and strong feeling.

Technical skill is pretty much a given here, but I find the more evocative pieces of more interest than those that focus on playing lots of notes all in the right order. The three tango-related pieces, by Jose Luis Gonzalez, Jose Serebrier, and Astor Piazzolla, are alternately driving and passionate, and beautifully played. Virtuosity is always on display, but more importantly, so is musicianship of the highest order.

But wait, there's more! The disc ends with a real surprise: Alan Ridout's Ferdinand. The actor Hector Elizondo narrates the beloved Munro Leaf story Ferdinand the Bull, while Barton Pine provides the musical accompaniment that helps to make this story every bit as entertaining as the Oscar-winning Disney cartoon from 1938.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb release: 25 stars Dec 30 2011
By Laszlo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are many reasons for my 5-star review. Five reasons to be exact (sadly with no posiiliity of giving this one a 5x5=25-star-review.)
First, the enterprise itself is very compelling. It is not easy to plan a solo violin CD and make it "attractive". So there has been a lot of thought and work into this one. It is a succulent 79+ minutes that you can take at once.
Then, the music; some of it recorded elsewhere, most of it not. The arrangements are outstanding. Take 'Asturias','Recuerdos del Alhambra' or 'Jeux Interdits', so guitar-oriented, and yet so convincing here.
Then, the liner notes. As with previous releases, this is the way it should always be. Informative, full of interesting detail, even personal. The only thing I missed was the date-of-composition (or arrangement). In most cases is not mentioned and I find it important for historic context.
Next, the performances. Ms. Barton Pine is a wonder of nature and a true humanist. Apart from her personal story (an example of beating the odds) her artistry is amazing; hats off! And I hope that someone notices this in the future when it comes the time to decide who gets the Kennedy Center Honors Prize!
Lastly, to Cedille. It is not often that we find a US label so refined,so professional while truly adventurous. You can feel how their main purpose is not merely making money, but a true labor of love. An enterprise where Ms Barton Pine is always involved. Kudos to eveyrone.
Highly recommended.

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine essays a selection of music by Spanish, Central American, and South American composers, arranged for solo violin. As we might expect, it's beautiful, strange, exciting, and always captivating.
