This 5 CD boxset presents the complete set of internationally acclaimed violinist Hilary Hahn's recordings for Sony. Contained are recordings of much-loved works such as Bach's Partitas for Solo Violin, and concerti by Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, and more - including the violin concerto written specially for Hahn by Edgar Meyer.

"For lovers of Bach and violin playing this is an unqualified must. It is really special." (MusicWeb May 2002 on the Bach)

"There have been a number of outstanding versions of the Barber Concerto in recent years... and Hahn's is among the finest ever." (Gramophone on the Barber)

"The ardor brings an almost heartbreaking warmth to this most lyrical of violin concerti. Her intonation strikes me as not only perfect, but exciting all by itself, and I prefer her tone to even Perlman's, at least for this work....the Beethoven, as far as I'm concerned, ranks as a must-have." (ClassicalNet on the Beethoven)

"Spellbinding...there is mastery in every silken phrase, every poised lyrical phrase...an object lesson in beautiful violin playing." Chicago Tribune (for Mendelssohn / Shostakovich)
