Extractions: Cover Story: Hilary Hahn - Violinist with a vision PSO opens new season with a bright, young star Friday, September 15, 2000 By Andrew Druckenbrod, Post-Gazette Classical Music Critic Hilary Hahn wants to personally thank you for listening. Pittsburgh Symphony PSO opens season with street party New faces in the PSO Hilary's 'Hahn-line' journal She doesn't say it in such a cheesy way she is 20 years old after all but the American violin virtuoso is doing her part and then some to help right the good ship classical. In a keynote address she gave this summer at the annual conference of the American Symphony Orchestra League in Boston, Hahn tactfully urged her fellow musicians to work harder to connect with audiences and offered tangible ways to do so. She advocated that artists look at "music television, the Internet, direct contact with audiences and programs for kids," while also maintaining they not be "reluctant to talk with the media." "To me, all of these activities on the part of artists are connected to the goal of breaking down barriers that keep people from coming to classical concerts," she said. "This isn't a matter of self-interest or egomania it's an effort to help with classical outreach." Hahn hasn't changed her tune since that conference "I think that there's a lot that [artists] can do that isn't too energy-consuming that would make a big difference," Hahn says over the phone. She'll put that theory into practice again this weekend when she performs in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's season-opening concert with music director Mariss Jansons. She'll play Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto in a concert that also includes Bela Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra and Ottorino Respighi's "Feste romane."

Extractions: HH : I was surely most influenced by my two teachers Klara Berkovich in Baltimore, from age five to ten, and Jascha Brodsky in Philadelphia, from age ten to 17. Both were very demanding teachers, but very kind, superb violinists: musicians of style and taste who allowed no technical shortcuts. I was extremely lucky to grow up under their guidance. HH : It gives young players and old ones, for that matter an opportunity to see that they are part of a long and very rich tradition of violinists, each of whom played differently, each of whom played effectively. And for those who are studious, it is a great resource for studying the technique of playing the violin. Nearly every school, every body type, every possible manner of holding the violin and bow is represented. GP : The filmmakers touch on the fact that the careers of some child prodigies were cut short due to the pressures of stardom. Is this a concern among contemporary artists like yourself, who have been in the spotlight from such a young age? How do you cope with the rigors of performing and being in the public eye?

She began playing the violin one month before her fourth birthday, in the children's program of the Peabody Conservatory. From age five to ten, she studied in Baltimore with Klara Berkovich, a native of Odessa, who taught for 25 years at the Leningrad School for the Musically Gifted. Her 1993 Philadelphia Orchestra debut was followed by engagements with the Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Pittsburgh Symphony. In March 1995, at age 15, she made her German debut, playing Beethoven's "Violin Concerto in D Major" with Lorin Maazel and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in a concert broadcast on radio and television throughout Europe. Two months later, she received the Avery Fisher Career Grant. In 1996, Ms. Hahn signed an exclusive recording contract with Sony Classical and made her Carnegie Hall debut in New York, as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

For once, Seattle has not had to wait to hear this kind of musician in the early stage of a career. Thanks to the enterprising and alert Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Hahn made her local debut more than two years ago and returned to appear with the orchestra this past spring. On Monday night at Benaroya Hall, Hahn made her recital debut, opening the symphony's Distinguished Artists Series. She proved she was adept on stage with only a pianist an excellent pianist at that, Natalie Zhu as she is with an orchestra. The program of Brahms, Bach, Mozart and Saint-Saens was hardly adventuresome, as one might think a 21-year old might be, but it revealed, in the main, the kind of gifts Hahn possesses.

Extractions: Readers who have heard the artists Sony debut recording of Bach Sonatas and Partitas, her Barber/Meyer disc, or her Grammy-winning CD of Brahms and Stravinsky Violin Concertos know that she is capable of music making of the highest order. This impression was further confirmed when I heard Hilary play Bach, Bloch, and Mozart live on February 8, 2004. The solo Bach Partita No. 2 performance was extraordinary, not only for its unquestionable technical proficiency but moreso for its intellectual and emotional coherence. Zhu proved a more than able partner in the Mozart and Bloch, exhibiting equal degrees of care and nuance.
