Rachel Podger is a violinist specialising in music from the Baroque era and known for her performances on a Baroque instrument (roughly a full tone lower than a modern violin and usually played with gut strings). Podger's recordings of the Bach's solo sonatas and partitas, and her recording of the same composer's double violin concerto (with Andrew Manze) and sonatas with harpsichord (with Trevor Pinnock), have all been met with critical acclaim.
