Decca Records has announced the release of American violinist Hilary Hahn‘s new album: Hilary Hahn Plays Bach.
The new disc features J.S. Bach’s Solo Violin Sonatas No. 1 & 2 in G Minor and A Minor – and Solo Violin Partita No. 1 in B Minor.
“When I recorded my first album, of half of the set, when I was 16 and 17, I didn’t have a plan to complete the set … I wanted simply to record the music I knew best at the time …” the 39-year-old superstar violinist, and mother of two, has told The Violin Channel.
“In the intervening years, this new record has been the project I’ve been asked about the most … ‘When are you going to complete your solo Bach?’” Hilary has said.
“This music is still the repertoire I play the most … every week, most days … and the time came when I felt this record needed to be made … I’m really proud of where it has led me.”
