Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
Violinist Hilary Hahn has wisely chosen a program of concertos by J.S. Bach for her debut release on the venerable Deutsche Grammophon label. Bach's prodigious output is, of course, the bedrock of Western classical music tradition, yet it is remarkably timeless, and Hahn, despite her young age, has well established herself as an accomplished interpreter of his works. She gets things off to a rousing start with a vigorous account of the Concerto in E Major, the outer movements taken at an almost breakneck speed that might be considered reckless for lesser players. But the gifted violinist is in full control throughout, and the resulting performance is
Read more exhilarating. She renders the contrasting Adagio movement into a showcase for her lustrous tone, perfect intonation, and expressive phrasing.
Hahn's rendition of the Concerto in A Minor is similarly enthralling, further demonstrating the breadth of her technical and interpretive abilities. The disc includes two "double" concertos, and the graceful interplay with each partner shows her skill as an extraordinarily sensitive and thoughtful musician. Jeffrey Kahane and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra prove a perfect match for the star violinist and provide excellent support throughout. This is a remarkable addition to Hahn's already impressive discography, and will undoubtedly further enhance her reputation. Read less
