Hilary Hahn: Paris

Hilary Hahn (OJ Slaughter)

Multi Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn joins us to talk about her album Paris – a musical love letter to the city she has been visiting and performing in since her teenage years. Alongside the masterful and vibrant Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 1, Hilary plays a sumptuous classic: Ernest Chausson's Poème for violin and orchestra. Also on the album, two gorgeous serenades written for Hilary by Einojuhani Rautavaara – the last pieces the celebrated Finnish composer wrote before his death in 2016.
