Hilary Hahn has been one of the best-known violinists in the world for twenty-five years, playing with a style that is "technically immaculate and musically magisterial” (Los Angeles Times). Her incomparable skill is matched by her musical intelligence and daring programming; not only is she a first-class exponent of Bach’s work, but she is also one of the foremost commissioners of new works for the violin (including Jennifer Higdon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning concerto). Pioneer Press calls her playing "brimming with emotion and enthusiasm, excitement and interpretive imagination." Nürnberger Nachtrichten lauds her as "the epitome of violinist perfection." Whatever the piece, this international star performs with a musicality “at once impetuous and authoritative, brilliant and beautiful” (The New York Times). At the time of printing, Hilary Hahn's Duke Performances program with pianist Robert Levin has not yet been finalized. Given her extraordinary history, audiences should expect a wide-ranging repertoire and a truly moving performance from a once-in-a-generation American talent. Program to be announced in Fall 2016.
