Bookmark and Share

Internationally renowned violinist Hilary Hahn has performed with many of the most famous orchestras in the world -- creating experiences she will always treasure. Nonetheless, recital performances are especially dear to the 34-year-old's heart.

Her latest, with pianist Cory Smythe, is "In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores" the result of a multi-year project in which she commissioned 26 composers around the world to create short works that would be appropriate for concert encores. For the 27th piece, an open contest took place that attracted more than 400 original works.

Hahn will perform with Smythe at Fairfield University's Quick Center on Tuesday, April 22 at 8pm. READ THE FULL Connecitcut Post INTERVIEW.
