"A frightfully good, thoroughly entertaining fire and brimstone recital, warmly (or, in keeping with the theme, hotly) recommended. Look out, Jack Nicholson!" – Fanfare

Once again Rachel has put together a "killer" CD. Rachel has shown excellent judgment in her choice of materials for this CD. I think Rachel breezes through these difficult pieces masterfully-her harmonics set my hair on end and give me chills. She seems to have a natural inclination for the fire of these pieces. - Chapman Tucker (Amazon.com customer)

I bought this CD after reading about the Ernst transcription of Schubert's "Erlkonig," checked out the reviews of a host of violinists who performed it--and was totally shocked when I heard Barton's performance of the piece. She actually gets the "four voices" of the narrator, child, father, and Erlkonig on a solo violin!! One listen and I could not believe that this was a solo violinist!! All of the compositions are just as memorable, and the two other artists who appear on the album are also excellent!! THIS IS A "MUST HAVE" RECORDING!! - Dr. Robert S. Bean (Amazon.com customer)
