Product Description

Amazon.com

Hilary Hahn is certainly one of the best young violinists before the public. Now 23 years old, she has abundantly fulfilled her early promise as a radiantly talented as well as singularly earnest prodigy, and grown into a brilliant violinist and a communicative, arresting performer. On this recording, which features Bach's Violin Concertos in A minor, BWV 1041 and E major, BWV 1042, as well as the Concerto for two violins in D minor, BWV 1043 and the Concerto for violin and oboe in C minor, BWV 1060, her flawless technique and strikingly beautiful, intensely focussed tone are on full display. There is a noble, restrained quality in her playing, so that although her tone-production and vibrato are "modern," her sound has a classical, pristine purity. (By contrast, the orchestral sound, though good, is surprisingly lush - a rather odd discrepancy.) Hahn's interplay with her two excellent partners is close and unanimous in tone and style; the less familiar Concerto for violin and oboe is especially compelling. Unfortunately, Hilary Hahn, despite her serious, thoughtful approach to music, seems to have succumbed to the current trend among today's performers--perhaps symptomatic of the jet-age--to play as fast as their fingers will carry them. The fast movements are taken at such speeds that they lose all their elegance, grace and charm, become prone to false accents, and sound aggressive, hectic and breathless. A performer with less musical integrity might be suspected of just wanting to show off her effortless facility. However, Hahn's musicality, expressiveness and affinity for Bach (she has also recorded the unaccompanied solo violin works on Sony) come through in the slow movements, where the playing is calm, expansive enough for carefully shaped phrases, emotionally concentrated, and simply beautiful. --Edith Eisler

Customer Reviews

The fast movements are too fast and feel mechanical.
Moses Sedler
As always, Hahn plays beautifully; her love for the music is evident from the moment she begins, and she displays it with a rich tone and great technical skill.
Dafydd Mac an Leigh
Bach played by Hilary Hahn is indeed one of the finest interpretations of a great composer.

Hilary Hahn's status as one of the new stars of classical music has been firmly established; however, she has never let her stardom go to her head. She treats the music she plays as the collaborative effort it is, playing *with* an orchestra or pianist rather than simply expecting them to accompany her. And as those of us fortunate enough to have seen her in concert can attest, she seeks out interaction with the audience as well, coming out after every performance - and sometimes during intermission too - to talk with us and sign autographs. In this new CD (her first with Deutsche Grammophon), Hahn further demonstrates her collaborative strengths with a program of Bach chamber music.
The album contains the Violin Concerti in A Minor & E (BWV 1041 & 1042 respectively), the Double Concerto (BWV 1043), and the Oboe & Violin Concerto (BVW 1060). Far from the large orchestral affairs that concerti have become, Bach wrote these pieces for the solo instrument(s), a small string section, and a harpsichord. As always, Hahn plays beautifully; her love for the music is evident from the moment she begins, and she displays it with a rich tone and great technical skill. And as befitting Bach's music, she treats her solo line as an extension of the ensemble. The ensemble, in this case, is the excellent Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Led by keyboardist/conductor Jeffrey Kahane, they play with energy, skill, and a real sense of enjoyment. Concertmistress Margaret Batjer and principal oboist Allan Vogel play their solo lines with Hahn as a kind of dialogue, shifting the balance back and forth as the music unfolds.
The artistry and musicianship on this album is first-rate, and the CD is sure to delight lovers of Bach, Hahn, and chamber music alike.

Hilary Hahn gives us yet another outstanding album in her first effort on the Deutsche Grammophon label. The first word that comes to mind with these performances is 'crisp.' They are precise in tempo and tone; exactly how Bach is meant to be performed! Even slower passages are performed with pulse and bounce. There's no sluggishness like in other renditions that I've heard. One gets the impression that the ensemble strives to honor every intention of Bach.
The performers then prove that 'crisp' and 'lyrical' are not mutually exclusive. The complex voicings weave and un-weave in masterful and musical fashion; the musical lines ebb and flow with purity--nothing out of place or character. I cannot escape the feeling that the musicians have given thought to the performance of each note and from that attention to detail comes a beautiful whole.
Shortly after Bach's time, the structure of a concerto changed from an ensemble piece for chamber musicians to a piece for soloist and full orchestra. Hence many recordings of these pieces are done by 'name' soloists and 'name' orchestras and lose their intimacy in the process. This recording does not; kudos to DG and Hahn for the choice of the thoroughly musical and consummately professional Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra for this disc.
The Double Concerto (BWV 1043) is probably the gem of this disc. Bach's original scoring for this piece was intended for either two violins or two harpsichords, which makes one truly appreciate the genius of a composer able to write a single piece that is effective for both a sustaining and a non-sustaining instrument. Hahn and second violinist Margaret Batjer are perfect in their execution of the counterpoint in the first and third movement.

This is great! Not that the SACD sound is all that great - sadly this is not a demo of what SACD can do. Hahn really deserves the best. But wow! It sure is a demo of what Hahn can do and I mean musically, not just technically. I had always thought of the concerto #2 as a sort of bore compared to such as Bruch, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev etc. Hilary Hahn proves that it is a wonderful, toe-tapping energetic exciting work that you will come to love not just respect. The other works are beautifully executed by all concerned - except that, as I say the sound could - no, SHOULD have been a litte more refined. DG ought to listen to some Telarc SACDs to learn what can be done in this technology. I've been priveleged to hear Hahn in Boston's Symphony Hall and in Carnegie Hall, and I have yet to hear a recording that communicates the special beauty of her sound.

Hilary Hahn gives a rousing and impeccable performance of Bach's Concertos in her latest album entitled Bach Concertos which is available for purchase as a Hybrid Super Audio CD. Her brilliance shines in her careful treatment of Bach's Concerto for Violin, Strings, and Continuo in E major, BWV 1042. Comprised of three tracks totalling sixteen minutes and twenty-eight seconds in length, her prodigy is plainly evident as she delicately balances her own gusto with delicately slow and tempered bow strokes on the first track. Then, she abruptly switches to a much faster tempo to jolt her listeners from their state of ease in tracks two and three. Herein, she captivates her audience with rapturous playing that is reminiscent of yet another woman violinist possessed (Rachel Podger). Yet, she has enough sensibility to not give offense to listeners who simply want a "rock 'n roll" performance of classical music; no, she flatly refuses to give into one mode of interpretive playing by preserving the iridescent splendor of Bach's music and she employs variegated approaches to each piece. In fact, Hahn lends credence to the distinct character and shape of each piece as an alive and independent spirit.
I can go on and on with this jewel of an album but I will leave it up to you to discover the other hidden treasures awaiting your listening pleasure.
As to the technical merits of the album, it is a Super Audio CD containing both a Stereo and Surround version as well as a Red Book CD layer. It is my opinion that the level of musicianship of Hahn in her latest album is par excellence - this is her best performance in my entire collection.
