The world celebrates Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's birthday on January 27. Violinist Rachel Barton Pine has always felt a special connection to Mozart. That's why she has recently released a CD of all 5 Mozart Violin Concertos as well as the Sinfonia Concertante.  

Pine explains that she was homeschooled as a child -- which helped her get her studies finished more quickly so she would have time to practice more.  Also, Pine speaks about her connection to Brahms.
