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."
