Hilary Hahn and Cory Smythe, Wigmore Hall, 22/03/15

Yes! I am back at it, and clogging up your newsfeeds once again. Anyhow, I was extremely pleased with this recital; I hope you enjoy the review.

‘Hilary Hahn’s world tour arrived in London for a single concert at the Wigmore Hall on Sunday, bringing with it the American violinist’s characteristic assurance, poise and a really rather original programme. Not featuring, as one might have expected, music from her new CD of Vieuxtemps and Mozart, but instead interspersing classics – Schumann, Debussy, and Bach – with items from her earlier disc of newly-commissioned encores and other unusual choices, this wide-ranging programme was performed throughout with great verve and style by Hahn and Cory Smythe.’
