This concert was performed in an empty hr-Sendesaal Frankfurt on April 22, 2021.
Hahn, one of the world's preeminent soloists, returned from a yearlong 2019-2020 sabbatical amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, over a year since the pandemic first hit, orchestras in some parts of the world are beginning to bring performances back to their concert halls.
"I think it's going to be really important to look at the meaningful things during this time, and try to keep them going, even if the circumstances feel more normal," Hahn told The Violin Channel in a March interview about returning to performing after an extended period of time away from the stage.
"I'm motivated by the intensity of the music in a time when people are apart, and the fact that we can still connect, even sometimes more meaningfully."
She was also recently appointed as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's inaugural artist-in-residence.
