Hilary Hahn: Bach Partitas and Sonatas

Early in her career, violinist Hilary Hahn took on music that many before her wouldn’t approach until they were a little older.  She chose three of the six unaccompanied violin works of J.S. Bach, a set regarded as the pinnacle of solo violin repertoire.  Now, 21 years later, Hahn returns to complete the set.  Naturally, her interpretation may sound different, but one constant remains:  Hilary Hahn is very much at home with these 6 pieces.  She shares more about it with All Classical Portland’s program director John Pitman.
