RACHEL BARTON PINE   RELEASES TESTAMENT:
COMPLETE SONATAS AND PARTITAS FOR SOLO VIOLIN BY JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH
ON AVIE RECORDS

Pine Is The Only American Gold Medalist of the J.S. Bach International Violin Competition in Leipzig, Germany
Album Release Coincides with Bach's March 21 Birthday

In celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach's March 21 birthday, Billboard chart-topping violinist Rachel Barton Pine releases her recording Testament: Complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin by Johann Sebastian Bach.

The album – her second on Avie Records – is available for sale on April 1.

Johann Sebastian Bach's contributions to classical music are universally acknowledged and celebrated as among the most significant and profound. His contrapuntal writing continues to set the standard by which any musical composition is judged. Among the greatest examples of his mastery of counterpoint, the Six Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin are a cornerstone of every violinist's study and repertoire.
