Mozart: Violin Concerto #5, Vieuxtemps #4 / Hahn
Hilary Hahn (violin) The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Paavo Järvi
Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K219 'Turkish' Vieuxtemps: Violin Concerto No. 4 in D, Op. 31
After her last two albums of completely new compositions, “Silfra” and “In 27 Pieces – The Hilary Hahn Encores”, Hilary returns with classic-romantic repertoire. Two-times Grammy Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn now combines Mozart’s beloved Concerto in A, K 219 – with its fiery “Turkish” episode – with the rich, virtuosic romanticism of Vieuxtemps’ Violin Concerto No. 4. More than 25 years have passed since Hilary first learned both concertos: “Ever since early childhood, opening the sheet music to a piece I love but haven’t yet played has felt like a magical combination of winning the lottery and setting out on an epic trip.” The release features a wonderful interplay of Hilary Hahn and Paavo Järvi with his orchestra The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
