Interview with Radio Purdue's John Clare

Twenty one years ago, violinist Hilary Hahn hit the classical scene with Plays Bach on Sony Classical. Now a superstar performer, Hahn returns on Decca Classics to finish the cycle of solo violin works by Johann Sebastian Bach: Solo Sonatas 1 and 2, plus the Partita No. 1. Hahn says "Not a week has passed since then without an audience member asking me when I'll record the rest of the set." We're so tickled she finally has "completed" the set. There is something perfect about her approach, sound, and interpretation. It's a must own for any music lover, especially violinists and those who love Bach's music.
