Hilary Hahn

Michael Patrick O'Learly

There’s nothing too unusual about a soloist performing with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. Except when that soloist is violinist Hilary Hahn. Not only is Hahn one of the world’s top violinists, but several years ago she gave the world premier performance and recording of the Violin Concerto by Edgar Meyer. This weekend, with the ASO, Hilary Hahn revisits the Meyer Violin Concerto – a work that was specifically commissioned for her. She spoke with WBHM’s Michael Krall and shared her thoughts on the piece…

Hilary Hahn performs the Violin Concerto by Edgar Meyer with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, tonight and tomorrow night at UAB’s Alys Stephens Center.
