Exclusive Photos From Hilary’s Bach Party

There are a lot of older men–myself included–who have had a crush on Hilary Hahn for an unwholesome length of time so I was not surprised when a couple of my best friends–professional photographers who normally wouldn’t pick up a camera unless there was money involved–volunteered to run down to the Village Gate…ur, Le Poisson Rouge for those of you with no respect for history–and shoot some pictures for free at her Bach Party last night.  The occasion was the release of Hilary’s newest album, Bach: Violin and Voice on Deutsche Grammophon.

“Ms. Hahn is even more enchanting in person than foretold,” Peter Vidor gushed in an e-mail to me today.  “Her every line and her every move bespeak surpassing eloquence and grace, and in speaking of her I feel like a stricken schoolboy.”

I haven’t heard from my other friend, Tomas Sennett.  He must have been too stricken to remember to snap a picture.

A couple of more photos after the break.

Forgot to mention that Hilary is scheduled to be on the Tonight Show on Thursday night–if Conan O’Brian is not too pissed to show up.

Hilary Hahn is one of my favorite violinists. I don’t have the new CD yet, but I’ll be picking it up this weekend. I really enjoyed her performance on on the Tonight Show January 14. If she was a member of the Tonight Show band I’d watch every night no matter who the host was! Can’t wait for the next time I see her in concert.
