About

Classical violinists can’t complain when it comes to choosing encores. Hundreds of vintage pieces are up for grabs, written by legendary violinist-composers such as Fritz Kreisler and Pablo de Sarasate, or by great violinist-arrangers like Jascha Heifetz.

But Hilary Hahn, one of the most artistically restless and resourceful violinists of our time, wanted more. She hatched an idea to restock the old pool of encores with fresh new pieces - not just two or three, but a couple dozen of them, now documented on the album 'In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores', with pianist Cory Smythe.

If only every instrumentalist did projects like this.” - The New York Times

Encores, by definition, are the musician’s gift to the audience. With this project, Hilary Hahn has handed over 27 new gifts that will keep on giving — both to listeners everywhere and to anyone who takes up a fiddle and a bow” - NPR Music

“…violinist Hilary Hahn has created a remarkable CD, one that is an incredible accomplishment on several levels. First, the performances are powerful – they will grab your heart with a vengeance when the music calls for it. And just as easily, they will warm your heart. Hilary ranges from dark and bittersweet, to fun, humorous and absolutely joyous. Rarely have so many new compositions appeared on a single recording where many, if not most, are destined to be played, enjoyed and remembered for a long time to come. I can’t stop listening.” - Sirius XM
