Named the 2008 Gramophone Artist of the Year, Grammy® Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn has been celebrated for her innovative interpretations, captivating stage presence and emotional sophistication. For over a decade, extensive international performances and recording activities have confirmed Hahn's place as one of the most sought-after artists on the concert circuit. Hahn appears regularly with the world's leading orchestras and on notable recital series throughout Europe, Asia and North America. In the 2008-09 season, she will tour the United States, China, Korea, Germany, England, France, Belgium, Hungary and the Netherlands as guest soloist with, among others, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the San Francisco, Baltimore, Vancouver and Toronto symphonies, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, and the Budapest Festival Orchestra. In 2009, Hahn will appear as soloist in the world premiere of Jennifer Higdon's Violin Concerto, co-commissioned by the Indianapolis, Toronto and Baltimore symphonies and the Curtis Institute of Music. Her recital tours and concert collaborations will take her to the United States, Canada, Japan, England, Italy, Austria, Germany, Spain, Croatia, Slovenia, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. Hahn's 2007-08 season brought wide-ranging recital tours of Europe and North America and appearances with major orchestras throughout the world. In April 2007, she was chosen to be the featured soloist in Pope Benedict XVI's 80th birthday celebration at the Vatican, a performance recently released on DVD. Hahn records for Deutsche Grammophon and, over the past six years, has released five albums for them, comprising works by Bach, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Mozart, Paganini, and Spohr. Her most recent Deutsche Grammophon recording paired the violin concertos of Schoenberg and Sibelius; the disc debuted at Number 1 and spent twenty three weeks on the Billboard classical chart. All of Hahn's recordings have received much critical acclaim and have spent multiple weeks on the Billboard Top Ten list. In 2007, Deutsche Grammophon distributed a popular documentary entitled Hilary Hahn: A Portrait, containing exclusive interviews and concert footage. Prior to signing with Deutsche Grammophon, Hahn made five award-winning recordings for Sony Classical, featuring repertoire by Bach, Barber, Beethoven, Bernstein, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich and Stravinsky, in addition to a concerto written for her by American composer/performer Edgar Meyer.
