"Hahn is an American violinist of fearless instincts, eager to tackle everything from Bach to Barber and beyond . . . Hahn . . . never fails to dazzle in performance."
- Los Angeles Times

". . . her musicality and feeling for Bach . . . is so genuine that she can not be expected of merely showing off. In these concertos, her first for the Deutsche Grammophon label, her flawless technique, beautiful tone, and restrained noble expressiveness are on full display."
- String (San Rafael)

Bach supplied the violin repertoire with surpassing masterpieces, including eight sonatas with harpsichord accompaniment, six works for unaccompanied violin, obbligato parts in his cantatas and passions, and a handful of concertos. The violin plays an important solo role in three of the Brandenburg Concertos as well as in the Triple Concerto in A minor for flute, violin, and harpsichord BWV 1044. But his essential works for solo violin and orchestra are the four concertos presented on this recording.

"Sometimes I'm asked, “What sets Bach apart from other great composers?" It's a difficult question to answer. There are so many details that one could point to, yet, like the famous Mona Lisa's smile, the most distinctive elements are the most elusive. Some people emphasize that Bach's music captures the essence of humanity, that it brings together complex elements of light and shadow, solitude and communion, elation and the depths of sorrow. The listener is led through conflict to beautiful resolution, but satisfying as the resolution may be, another layer of expression is constantly waiting to be uncovered. I feel that this is true of all of Bach's compositions."
- Hilary Hahn

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
