It is high time someone recorded such a beautiful tribute to an unsung hero of American classical music! Thank you for sharing this tribute with us. Best wishes. - Brady

This recording is just plain fun! Rachel Barton Pine is one of my favorite young violinists, and this may be my favorite of her albums! Not only is the music exceptionally well chosen, Mrs. Pine's performances are top-notch across the board. As usual, her technique is wonderful. And the musicality of the performances leaves nothing to be desired. Just listen to the sweetness of her playing in Amy Beach's Romance! I can listen to this one track over and over and not become bored. Then contrast the fiery virtuosity Pine exhibits in Bellstedt's Caprice on Dixie. Just wonderful! Let's just say this disc is going to remain in my CD player for a long time! Highly, highly recommended. - Arthur W. Haule, III (Amazon.com customer)

This is a very satisfying recording that you will enjoy listening to over and over. The primary reason I purchased this audio CD was to hear the "Dixie" track. To my delight I found the other tracks just as unique and pleasing. This is a virtuosa performance and even though a number of the songs are American standards it is not "light" music. You will marvel at the interpretations. This has a definite place in your classical music library. - J. Yingling (Amazon.com customer)
