New Release: Hilary Hahn Plays Bach

Violinist Hilary Hahn has released a new album featuring Johann Sebastian Bach’s Partita No. 1 and Sonatas 1 and 2. This completes the set of solo Bach music that she started with her debut recording back in 1997. Hahn says, “I love these pieces. Indulging in the freedom of the moment is the only way to attain an honest performance, and the moments and grand gestures that Bach gifted violinists through these works are magically infinite.”
