Notes and Editorial Reviews
* The documentary Hilary Hahn – On The Road was filmed in 2004 by director Benedict Mirow and first broadcast on German television in January 2005.
* This film is created in the style of a road movie and delivers a very personal account of this violinist’s world, following Hilary Hahn’s travels from continent to continent and capturing moments unseen by the public: Hahn backstage before and after the show, rehearsing, sightseeing, or showing the cameraman around the Curtis Institute where she studied.
* In addition to the documentary, the DVD release is packed with supplementary live material, including video excerpts from a recent concert with her recital partner Natalie Zhu as well as the violinist’s first
recording of the Korngold Violin Concerto with the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Kent Nagano – a performance hailed by critics as “grand cinema for the for the ears.” (Hamburger Abendblatt)
