Notes and Editorial Reviews



Three-time Grammy Award winning violinist Hilary Hahn released her first album, 'Hilary Hahn plays Bach', when she was 17 to great critical and popular success. Now 38, she completes her recording of the Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin with an album, her Decca label debut, featuring the first partita and first and second sonatas.

Read more nuance and tone on offer so much wider than it had been.
