The album is violinist Rachel Barton Pine’s original concept, inspired by the birth of her first child in September 2011. She could find no existing collection of classical violin lullaby scores and or any compilation recordings. So, she set about gathering sheet music from libraries around the world, amassing a collection of 150 pieces. Her album features 25 lullabies by some of the world’s greatest composers: Schubert, Fauré, Strauss and Ravel, including Gershwin’s “Summertime ” from Porgy and Bess and the famous Brahms’ Lullaby.
