For anyone that has wondered what Hilary Hahn has to do with photography and why I would put her site on my blogroll – they have never heard her play Bach and Stravinsky.
Other than that nothing…….
Her interpretation of Bach’s Concerto for violin is simply superb. She plays without pretension and has an intuitive musical understanding that is rarely seen.
Oh and she does not use excessive vibrato! The Barber Violin Concerto is maybe the exception; although she does generally try to control it. But double stops with two fingers can be interesting if one is trying to follow such things as fingering – don’t ask I just have a long time interest in the violin.
