Hilary Hahn to be Featured on New Suzuki Violin Book Recordings

it has been announced that violinist Hilary Hahn will be featured on the new recordings of the Suzuki Violin School Volumes 1-3

The International Suzuki Association in collaboration with Alfred Music have this week announced that American violinist Hilary Hahn will be the featured violinist on newly produced recordings of the Suzuki Violin School Volumes 1-3.

The recordings will replace the existing official Suzuki Violin School recordings which had included performances by the disgraced former Cleveland Orchestra Concertmaster, William Preucil.

The 60-year-old violinist was fired from the Suzuki Organization in October 2018 after an investigation confirmed that he had engaged in serious sexual misconduct during his tenure with the Cleveland Orchestra.

“Many students grow up idolizing the musician whose playing they emulate … it is important who is on the recording,” Laurie Niles from violinist.com has told The Washington Post.

In August of 2018 following the investigation, William Preucil was terminated from his leadership position with the Cleveland Orchestra - and resigned from his teaching position as a Professor of Violin at the Cleveland Institute of Music.

The new recordings will be available on a variety of platforms, including SmartMusic, the Suzuki Organization has this week indicated.
