Women's History Spotlight: Maud Powell
Current classical star Rachel Barton Pine has modeled her career and every thing she does after another great violinist: Maud Powell.
Powell, who died in 1920, was the first instrumental recording star of the Victor Talking Machine Co. She became the first female instrumentalist of any instrument for any genre to receive a Grammy lifetime achievement award, but not until 2014.
