- Mozart: Violin Concerto No.5 In A, K.219
- Vieuxtemps: Violin Concerto No.4 In D Minor, Op.31
On this recording, award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn combines Mozart’s beloved Concerto #5 in A, K 219, with the rich, virtuosic romanticism of Vieuxtemp’s Violin Concerto No. 4.
- Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K219 ‘Turkish’
- Violin Concerto No. 4 in D, Op. 31
Performed by Hilary Hahn, violin, with Paavo Jarvi conducting the German Chamber Philharmonic of Bremen.
More than 25 years have passed since Hilary Hahn first learned both of these concertos. She commented as follows:
“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.”
And she continues to explain:
“Mozart’s 5 and Vieuxtemps 4 are part of me. They remind me of the rich legacy of classical music and of the wonderful continuity of tradition, yet they are also timeless. When I play these notes onstage with my colleagues, I don t reflect on the past; I’m caught up in the dialogue, looking forward to whatever the next phrase will bring.”
