Rachel Barton Pine on her recording of Elgar and Bruch

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine is known for her catholic taste in music, performing everything from the standard Romantic concertos to baroque rarities on period equipment. Her new album features the first Bruch concerto, an audience favorite, with the underperformed (and perhaps misunderstood) Elgar concerto. The BBC Symphony is led by Andrew Litton. Michael Keelan talked with Rachel Barton Pine.

Violinist Maria Milstein and Marcel Proust's inspiration

Maria and Nathalia Milstein have released a new album, La sonate de Vinteuil (The Vinteuil Sonata), which includes some of the pieces that may have inspired Marcel Proust as he described the entrancing music composed by Vinteuil, a character in his massive novel, In Search of Lost Time. The album also features songs of Reynaldo Hahn. Maria Milstein talked with Michael Keelan from Lyon, France.
