Beautiful Music NOW - Rachel Barton Pine

Rachel Barton Pine is such a marvelous musician, teacher, entrepreneur, and activist. You may know her as a violin player. She also plays a much more unusual instrument -- viola d'amore. Today's Beautiful Music features Rachel Barton Pine playing and teaching about the viola d'amore, the "14-string cousin of the violin." She plays music by Johann Georg Pisendel, Louis-Toussaint Milandre, and Carl Stamitz.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
