Notes & Reviews:

Hilary Hahn is an American Grammy Award winning violinist. This album features the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen. Violin Concerto, Op.36 Composed by Arnold Schoenberg and Violin Concerto in D minor, Op.47 Composed by Jean Sibelius. She has an online journal of her life as a working classical violinist busy on the concert road. As Hilary puts it 'a nomadic musician - a modern troubadour'.

"An amazing performance (of the Schoenberg), plain and simple, quite possibly the finest the piece has yet been given, and enjoyable on that basis aloneCoupled to a truly characterful and personal view of the Sibelius, this disc ratifies Hahn's standing among the most outstanding violinists active today... Both pieces benefit from the close cooperation between Hahn and the orchestra, and happily DG's engineers find an excellent balance between the two. Every detail of the solo registers clearly, but without sounding artificially forward." -Classics Today (10/10)
