Hilary Hahn, violinist
Violinist Hilary Hahn’s probing interpretations, technical brilliance, and commitment to new music and the commissioning process have not only made her one of the most sought-after artists of our time, but also brought her love of classical music to a diverse audience. Although only 31 years old, her international fame and recognition, including two Grammies, multiple Diapason “d’Or of the Year” and “Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik” prizes, and the 2008 Classic FM / Gramophone Artist of the Year, are a testament to her talent and drive.
Hahn appears regularly with the world’s elite orchestras and on the most prestigious recital series. In the 15 years since she began recording, Hahn has released 12 feature albums on the Deutsche Grammophon and Sony labels, in addition to three DVDs, an Oscar-nominated movie soundtrack, an award-winning recording for children, and various compilations.
Ms. Hahn will announce the order of the pieces from the stage.
Fauré Sonata #1 in A, op. 13.
Corelli Sonata #4 in F major, op. 5.
Chaconne from Partita #2 in d minor by Bach.
