Interview with Spokane PR's Jim Tevenan

When Hilary Hahn plays Bach came out on Sony in 1997, critics were astounded that a performer would choose solo Bach for her debut album; they were further confounded by her elegant approach to this music's technical and interpretive challenges at such a young age. "Not a week has passed since then without an audience member asking me when I'll record the rest of the set," Hahn says, having 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 in an album that will be released on Decca Classics on October 5, 2018. The new album includes the first partita and first and second sonatas.

HH recently sat down with Spokane Public Radio Classical Host - James Tevenan to discuss the new recording. Listen to the attached clip.
