Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging - 1/24

It was our distinct pleasure on Friday evening to hear Hilary Hahn perform with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.  They played the Violin Concerto that contemporary American composer Jennifer Higdon, wrote for Hahn.  This is a new work that premiered last February in Indianpolis.  She plans to record it in the near future.  Meanwhile, here is Hahn playing Prokofiev.

Here she is interviewing Jennifer Higdon,

Playing at the Grammy award ceremony,

And accepting her second Grammy, wearing the dress she wore for the DSO performance.

Great videos! I had the pleasure of seeing Hillary Hahn perform in San Francisco a few years ago, she is truly amazing.
