Air & String....

Last night was the Hilary Hahn performance with the DSO . The tickets were the birthday present that I told you about here.

Her playing is more amazing in person than I anticipated. She is able to clearly bring out many "voices" in one piece. On her cd's there are times when I wondered who is playing the "other violin". The answer: no one, she brings all those voices into the piece through her hands.

The audience was absolutely awe struck, just like me. And so, I will share a little of this with you:

Now that you've seen her play, here's a different perspective:

And if you'd like to hear how she thinks about her work take a listen to DSO Unmasked on April 20. Sit down with your knitting, spinning, or cup of tea and enjoy!


  1. Wow! She is amazing! That second piece made me want to cry. What an amazing talent. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Boo-hoo, it wouldn't load on my computer. What a special evening to go watch and listen to Hilary Hahn live.
