Hilary Hahn, violin + Robert Levin, piano
Her playing was at once impetuous and authoritative, brilliant and beautiful.
– The New York Times
In the more than two decades since her professional debut, violinist Hilary Hahn has shown an ever-evolving approach to music making matched only by a curiosity about the world around her: “She started out as a prodigy of rare clarity and virtuosity and has developed into a daring, mature artist eager for new collaborations and repertory” (The New York Times). The three-time Grammy® Award-winning musician, who “sits atop the pantheon of stellar violinists,” (Nuvo) will bring her expansive interpretations and creative repertoire to the Bass Performance Hall stage for an incandescent, one-night-only performance with renowned pianist and conductor Robert Levin.
Join us for a Cliburn Conversations session at 6:30 p.m., one hour before concert time, in the Green Room on the Box Tier level of Bass Performance Hall. Enhance your concert experience with an in-depth look at the evening’s performance. These informative lectures, focusing on the lives, works, and inspirations of composers on the program, bring increased levels understanding and enjoyment to Cliburn Concerts audiences. They are free to ticket holders.
