We all know Hilary Hahn as Sequenza 21′s resident video blogger; oh, and she’s a world class violinist and DG recording artist.

Wearing both of those hats simultaneously, Hilary had a video chat via Skype with composer Max Richter earlier this week. Richter is one of 27 composers commissioned to write an encore for Hahn; she begins debuting the pieces this coming October. In order to spotlight the featured composers, Hilary’s planning to release a video interview with one each month.┬áIt makes us here at Sequenza 21 feel kind of special. After all, how many other websites have their video blogger booked two years out?

One thought on “Hilary Hahn Skypes with Max Richter (video)

  1. I cannot wait for this project to be finalized and released! This will definitely be a turning point for Hahn as she’s never had an entire album of all-new compositions.
    Very curious about that 27th piece too.
