For her latest album, Rachel Barton Pine worked with legendary conductor Sir Neville Marriner (a “hero” to her) and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields recording all of Mozart’s violin concertos and the Sinfonia Concertante, K. 364. While putting together this double-disc set of concertos was a huge undertaking, even more surprising is that Ms. Barton Pine gave a concert of all five concertos in 2011, just three weeks after giving birth to her first child! We’re featuring her album all week and giving you a chance to win a copy!
