Extractions: Hilary Hahn Bach is, for me, the touchstone that keeps my playing honest. Keeping the intonation pure in double stops, bringing out the various voices where the phrasing requires it, crossing the strings so that there are not inadvertent accents, presenting the structure in such a way that it's clear to the listener without being pedantic - one can't fake things in Bach, and if one gets all of them to work, the music sings in the most wonderful way. J. S. Bach Johann Sebastian Bach's six sonatas and partitas for solo violin are some of the most challenging pieces for the violinist, and there is some evidence that Bach intended them to form part of a "school" in unaccompanied violin playing. They were not written to commission and not intended for any one performance or artist. Plus they explore two genres of music popular at the time-the Italian sonata (basically a four-movement work with a slow-fast-slow-fast arrangement) and the French suite (a group of dances usually following the standard sequence of allemand-courante-saraband-gigue). The works involve so many techniques that they have become staples in the repertoire of any professional violin student. The violinist not only has to play the main melody, but also provide the accompanying harmonic lines by playing more than one string at a time (called "double-stopping" or "triple-stopping") - inherently challenging both in terms of intonation and bowing technique.

Extractions: Fulfilling her promise By Julia Zaustinsky At 19, American violinist Hilary Hahn is one of the most impressive and musically compelling artists in the ever-growing galaxy of young virtuosos. Her virtuosity transcends technical perfection and violinistic wizardry. She is a master musician whose playing is illumined by a love for music and the need to communicate. "Music, for me, is interactioninteraction with the audience and with colleagues," she says. "I play each piece of music the way I would like to hear it if I were in the audience." On stage, Hahns intense concentration grips the audience from the moment her bow touches the string. Immediately, she launches her listeners on a spellbinding musical journey. Her playing speaks from the heart with an intelligence, eloquence, and nobility that places her among the great interpreters of our time. Hahns extraordinary musical gifts were apparent at an early age. She made her debut as soloist with the Baltimore Symphony when she was 11. Her 1993 debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra was followed by engagements with the Cleveland Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony, and other major orchestras in the U.S. and Europe. At 16, she completed the Curtis Institutes graduation requirements, made her Carnegie Hall debut (again with the Philadelphia Orchestra), and signed an exclusive recording contract with Sony Classical. Her first CD (Sony 62793)a patrician performance of the last three of Bachs monumental Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violinreceived Frances

Email I can't go through one day without hearing about Britney Spears, but I've managed to go months without ever hearing about Lara St. John, even though she's just as good looking and has 6.02 x 10 times as much talent. And, in my opinion that is as humble as it is infallible, Hilary Hahn is the best violinist alive. This page now narrows the Spears/Hahn gap by one, to approximately 8 quadrillion to 3. At one time, Anne-Sophie Mutter and Leila Josefowicz were also here, but I've gotten rid of them for space reasons and because their playing isn't as inspired as Lara's and (especially) Hilary's. In any case, these are by no means the only pictures out there on the net, as I have no intention of being a "rabid fan of so-and-so's gallery," but are instead the ones I like the most. If you have good taste, you'll like them, too. It is surprisingly difficult to find pictures of her. All of these came from
Extractions: Samuel Barber: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, op.14 Edgar Meyer: Violin Concerto Hilary Hahn , violin The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Hugh Wolff Sony Classical SBK 89029 ( fullprice I have had the pleasure of following the recording carreer of Hilary Hahn since her international recording debut. It containes two of Bach's solopartitas and one of the sonatas, and it carried with it a promise of a young violinist uniquely talented. Hahn's account of the 3rd. partita is among the most stimulating I've come across, and I was thus not hesitant in purchasing her following recording of the Beethoven Violinconcerto . Not only is it the greatest of all violinconcertos but possibly the greatest work of music in the western tradition alltogether. I have collected quite a few versions of it over the years, but I tell you Hilary Hahn's account has a special place in my collection. I think I would prefer only Wolfgang Schneiderhahn's version with the Berliners and Eugen Jochum from 1961 (DG) to Hilary Hahn's supreme reading, and that is partly due to Jochum's and the BPO's spectacular orchestral performance. The Beethoven Concerto is coupled with Bernstein's dark spicey vision of Plato's symposium, which is treated to perfection by Hahn, David Zinman and the Baltimore Orchestra. Here we meet with Hahn yet again turning to American music, and despite my great anticipation I am again stunned by the result. I wouldn't dwell too long on whatever similarities there may be between Bernstein's concertante work, and that of Samuel Barber, but there are in both works present a willfullness, and an undeniable charm.
Extractions: Sonata nr 3 for violin solo, BWV 1005 Format: Compact Disc Record Label: Sony Classical Catalog Number: SK 62793 Year Released/Recorded: Total Playing Time: approx 60 min Comments: Katarina Ekstrom said: A very passionate and technically brilliant performance by (at the time of the recording) a 15 year old. Generally such a young artist is more concentrated on the technique rather than the feeling, but Hahn manages to bring forward the passion in Bach's work. Adam N. La Spata said: As well-played performances that older violinists might give, it is surprising that such a young person can accomplish her task to the same degree of passion and virtuosity. Although the Preludio of BWV 1006 is a bit too fast, this CD is a joy to listen to. I especially enjoyed the Courante and Sarabande of 1004 and the Fuga of 1005. And, as demanding as the excruiatatingly long Ciaccona is, Hahn never lost the intensity inherent in that movement. She takes great care with intonation of the double stops and bringing to the fore individual voices in the counterpoint. A very enjoyable disc overall. Shawn Dedrik said: If a bigger name were attached to this recording, it would surely be hailed as a monumental performance. These are unprecedented interpretations, far surpassing Milstein, Grumiaux, Heifetz, Perlman, St. John, Szeryng, Szigeti, you name it. Over time, I expect this to be regarded as the definitive recording of these pieces. Keep an eye out for this young violinist.
