Rachel Barton Pine is one of the greats. I got a chance to meet her at a competition and have become friends with her. At the competiton (The Sphinx Competition), she played a piece that she wrote...and it was some of the most incredible playing I've ever heard! It was a theme and variations based on an Irish Folksong. The audience and I were in shock as to what she was able to do. The violin did everything except talk! If you were to add up all the difficulties in the Paganini Caprices, and the Ernst Etudes, you'd still fall short of the difficulties that her piece contains. I hope she records it on CD one day for everyone to hear how amazing a violinist she is!
