Hilary Hahn

The startlingly young American violinist Hilary Hahn is 32 today. Her recording of the great Bach Chaconne is one that I listen to again and again, and it never palls. Here it is (and you can segue smoothly into part two if you're quick)... Thank you Hilary - and Happy Birthday!


  1. Thanks, Nige - I love this piece of music too. I used to listen to a recording by Heifetz... Bach sounds just as beautiful - but, oh, to be 32!

  2. Indeed Susan - so young, so talented, and playing as if from a lifetime...
