What They Say

“This diverse collection of miniatures represents the fruit of Hahn’s ambitious commissioning project, through which she engaged 26 composers to write brief works for violin and piano, and held a contest for encore number 27 that drew over 400 entries. Hahn was already a well-established virtuoso. This project marks her evolution as something far more interesting: a creative force.”

Boston Globe

“What makes this album crucial is less what it is than what it represents: a star soloist who has grown into a passionate advocate for the music of her time. If only every instrumentalist did projects like this.”

The New York Times

“One of the season’s stunners has been seeing In 27 Pieces, Hilary Hahn’s Deutsche Grammophon album of violin encores, rise to the top of classical sales charts. With new music. Really? This is so because this album is magnetic — in Hahn’s playing as well as in the diversity of excellent pieces written for her. “

Retrospective

2018

The collection includes at least one track from each of her 12 Deutsche Grammophon albums and live recordings from Hahn’s Meistersaal concert in Berlin, an event especially dedicated to her fans. The recording includes the live performance of Mozart’s Sonata KV 379, in addition to Max Richter’s “Mercy” and Tina Davidson’s “Blue Curve of the Earth,” with pianist Cory Smythe, from In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores. The double-disc LP version, which has fewer tracks overall but incorporates some additional favorite tracks, replaces “Blue Curve of the Earth” with the live recording of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s “Hilary’s Hoedown,” which is also from her Encores project. In assembling this compilation, she listened to all of her DG recordings from beginning to end and realized that certain movements and pieces resonated particularly strongly with her musical trajectory.
