NEW TO YOUTUBE | Hilary Hahn Performs Brahms' Violin Concerto in D major

The American violinist performs with Washington, D.C.'s National Symphony Orchestra and Italian conductor Gianandrea Noseda


Held at the Kennedy Center in concerts between September 30 and October 2, 2021, the program also featured Symphony No. 3 by Florence Price — the first Black woman who had her music performed by a major American orchestra.

Hahn performs with conductor Gianandrea Noseda, who serves his fifth year as music director of the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO). Noseda joins the NSO’s legacy of conductors such as Christoph Eschenbach, Leonard Slatkin, and Mstislav Rostropovich.





So far, Hahn has spent this season performing the Brahms and Dvořák violin concertos on tour with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra — with additional performances of the Dvořák scheduled with the BBC Philharmonic and Frankfurt Radio Symphony orchestras.

An acclaimed concert and recording artist, Hahn’s GRAMMY award-winning albums include her 2003 disc of the Brahms and Stravinsky concertos and 2013 “In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores.”

After her year-long sabbatical from 2019 to 2020, The Violin Channel caught up with Hahn in an interview in March this year on her return to the stage. “It's been probably the most intense, educational, and purpose-driven sabbatical I could have imagined,” she told us. 

On her interpretation of works she had been playing for many years, she explained: “Over the years, I've gotten more comfortable with taking my own space in an interpretation and not from anyone else. 

“If I have an intuitive moment where I want to hold a note longer, I know there's a reason for that,” she continued. “I communicate it to my colleagues, but I also assume that they're listening and that they are going to work with me on it and amplify it.”
