Hilary Hahn burst onto the classical scene in 1997 with her debut album 'Hilary Hahn plays Bach'.
Hilary has since enjoyed an incredibly successful international career and is considered one of the world's finest violinists, winning 3 Grammy awards amongst other honours.
Hilary is a strong advocate for classical music, leading projects like the specially commissioned 'In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores' collection of new compositions and her inspiring #100daysofpractice campaign on Instagram.
"This is quite simply magnificent violin-playing, the sort that while you're listening to it convinces you that the music couldn't possibly be played any other way…you soon realise just how far she's come since her teenage years, the tempo marginally more mobile and the variety of nuance and tone on offer so much wider than it had been...I adored it." Gramophone Recording Of The Month November 2018
"It's incendiary and thrilling stuff, created by someone who has lived with Bach so regularly and deeply that his music seems part of her very being...At the same time, nothing is done for show. Technique, feelings, heart and mind - every element is intuitively fused, as Bach always demands. Hahn's greatest, most dazzling mature achievement mirrors Bach's own: effortlessly conjuring the appearance of voices in counterpoint from single notes, abrupt changes in register and miraculous, spreadeagled chords."
