Overview

Higdon & Tchaikovsky: Violin Concertos

Higdon & Tchaikovsky Violin Concertos demonstrates Hilary Hahn's commitment to exploring new music while embracing the masterworks of the past. The disc features the world premiere recording of Jennifer Higdon's Violin Concerto. Higdon developed an intimate familiarity with Hahn's impeccable artistry after serving as the virtuoso's twentieth-century music professor at the Curtis Institute. The concerto, hailed by the Baltimore Sun as "tailor-made to the violinist's unflappable technique and musical depth," appears along with Hahn's fresh take on the monumental Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.

This album is not the first time that Hahn has explored the connections between two concertos that come from dramatically different origins; Barber & Meyer Violin Concertos (2000), Paganini & Spohr Concertos (2006), and the Grammy Award-winning Schoenberg & Sibelius Violin Concertos (2008) have all demonstrated Hahn's brilliant playing and her keen sensitivity to the violin repertoire.
