"I have fond memories of a visit Hilary Hahn made to the KMFA studios 9 years ago; she guest DJ'd with me for a couple of hours, playing some of her favorite works, and discussing her career and other artistic passions, so it was great to catch up with her."  - Dianne Donovan   

The brilliant multi Grammy Award winning violinist Hilary Hahn just released a new CD titled "Mozart 5, Vieuxtemps 4 - Violin Concertos" on Deutsche Grammophon. She also recently won a Grammy for her recording, "In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores." Dianne Donovan had a chance to catch up with her for a brief interview. They talked about her recent Grammy win and what it was like to work with 27 different composers for one recording, as well as the new Mozart release.

Hahn spoke about her process in procuring music, as well as the special connection she has to some of the pieces on these recent recordings. She also shared the kind of things she likes to do when not playing the violin.​
