Rachel Barton Pine wasn’t busy enough showcasing 24 violin concertos over 24 weeks, conducting master classes on all six Bach Sonatas & Partitas, championing music by living black composers, filling in for Midori at Ravinia, well, worry no longer. Her latest project is a Baroque Christmas with Trio Settecento. And the good news is that we can join Rachel virtually on Wednesday, December 22 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time. (Shhh, don’t tell my sister, but this is going to be a little "early" Christmas present we can share.)In case you thought
Trio Settecento, which features Rachel on violin, John Mark Rozendaal, cello, and David Schrader, harpsichord, will offer up favorites from the French, Italian, and British Isles traditions. (But I’m in it for Corelli’s Christmas Concerto and the Pifa from Handel’s IMessiah!)
Actually, I’m really in it for the guest appearance by Rachel’s 10-year-old daughter Sylvia Pine. I became familiar with Sylvia when she joined her mom for an episode of Fiddler’s Favorite Recipes, right here on v.com. My thought at the time was, “Give that girl her own show!” Sylvia started violin lessons at age 2 and began using a baroque bow at age 4. This should be fun.
