Award-winning American violinist Hilary Hahn embarked on her musical education at the age of four, enrolling on the prestigious Suzuki program at Baltimore’s Peabody Institute. She later became a student of Klara Berkovich and Jascha Brodsky at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, immersing herself in a rich repertoire of works by Kreutzer, Ševčik, Rode, and Paganini. Ms. Hahn made her international debut in 1995, performing Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D major with the Bavarian Symphony Orchestra, and recorded her first album for Sony in 1996 at the age of 16. She has since gone on to record 14 albums and has played in both symphonic and chamber settings, picking up two Grammy awards and earning a reputation as a dazzling soloist and interpreter of both established and contemporary works along the way.
