Interview with WBST's Steven Turpin

Hilary Hahn's newest album, Mozart 5, Vieuxtemps 4 - Violin Concertos, is her first recording with The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and Paavo Järvi, after performing and touring with the ensemble and conductor for many years. Released on March 31 2015, the disc is Hahn's first orchestral offering since her 2010 pairing of Tchaikovsky's violin concerto and Jennifer Higdon's Pulitzer-prize winning violin concerto, which was written for Hahn. With this new album, she returns to core violin repertoire, hot on the heels of her critically-acclaimed, Grammy-winning album of 27 commissioned short pieces, In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores, and an improvised recording with prepared pianist Hauschka, titled Silfra.

Indiana Public Radio's Steven Turpin sat down with HH to discuss the new album and her April 14th date at Ball State University. Listen to the attached clip.
