Each week for 24 weeks, join concert violinist Rachel Barton Pine live as she “pulls back the curtain” and offers the inside scoop from a soloist’s perspective on a different violin concerto from the standard repertoire. Over the course of the series, she’ll answer viewer questions and be visited by special musical guests.
Pine will intersperse stories and anecdotes, drawn from her 30+ years on the concert stage, with interesting facts and history about the piece and the composer and share how they influence her interpretations. She’ll reveal the most challenge spots and her tips and tricks for overcoming them, as well as her practice routine.
You’ll also join her “backstage” to witness her warm-up routine, just as she does before walking on stage, and then be treated to an unaccompanied performance of the entire concerto (exactly as she does before traveling to a concert appearance).
The series is geared towards career violinists, advanced students, violin teachers, and violin aficionados. Each episode will be streamed live and will last about an hour.
After each episode, Pine will host a Zoom meeting during which she’ll be available to answer additional questions and discuss the piece further. Single ticket purchasers may purchase access for an additional fee. Package holders (all 24 episodes) may join for free.
After the live stream, the episode will be available on demand to those who have purchased access.
