Violinist Rachel Barton Pine

May 10, 2013

Performance Today for Friday, May 10, 2013

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine says, "there's nothing more fundamental than holding an infant in your arms and rocking them gently to sleep." Classical composers are no different than other parents--singing, soothing, sometimes pleading their children to sleep. But many of them wrote their own lullabies. On Friday's Performance Today, Rachel Barton Pine plays a handful of little-known lullabies by well-known composers. Just in time for Mother's Day.
