刚二十四岁,获得过葛莱美大奖的希拉里·哈恩(Hilary Hahn)小姐就已是位名符其实的传奇小提琴家了.她的身影不时与世界顶级乐团同时出现在欧亚及北美地区.的确,过去十年来她一直就活跃在音乐舞台上,早在五年前她就是索尼古典录音室里的常客.如今,她又加盟到了德国古典皇牌DG(Deut sche Grammophone)门下.在美国,她被"时代週刊"评选为美国最年青的古典艺术音乐家.当她还是个十七岁的孩子时,就成为了赫赫有名的留声机(Grammophone)杂誌封面人物.显而易见,在国际音乐舞台上她被看成是当今最为引人注目、多才多艺的表演艺术家也就不足为奇了.…
Hilary Hahn1980年出生於弗吉尼亚。三岁搬到巴尔帝摩开始学习小提琴。十岁进入费城克提斯音乐学校（Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music）,师从於Mr.Klara Berkovich.此人是伟大的小提琴家伊萨伊最后还健在的弟子。一年半后举行了与巴尔帝摩交响乐团的收场演出。1993年开始先后与费城乐团，克里夫南乐团，纽约爱乐等乐团合作。年竟15岁的她与Lorin Maazel合作演奏贝多芬小提琴协奏曲在德国首演，大获成功，从此名扬欧洲。1996年与Sony签约，与费城乐团在纽约卡内基音乐厅首演。16岁她就完成了所有学业，其后几年继续选修语言，文学及室内乐。19岁获得音乐学士学位。2001年《时代》杂誌称她为「美国最优秀的青年古典音乐家」。

This review is from: Hilary Hahn plays Bach (Audio CD)
First off, to compare this recording (made when Hahn was 16) to Milstein's Sonatas and Partitas (made in the prime of his career, and considered one of the 3 or 4 greatest violin recordings of all time), shows how much I think of this one.
Now to be fair, Hahn's performance of the Second Partita is not Milstein's. Milstein's Giga is much fiendishly faster (played without the repeats, as was common in the early 1960s -- Glenn Gould in his piano recordings of Bach always left them out too), and a true baroque gigue. And Milstein's Chaconne! -- well, it is always on the edge -- technically, and in the depths of human emotion, suffering, and transcendance it engenders in the listener. And this is despite the fact that he plays it faster. It is almost impossible to come away from the Milstein recording of the Chaconne without feeling both emotionally exhausted and exhilarated. This remains the definitive performance.
Having said that, the Hahn performance will always have a place in my heart. The sound is rich and full, not ascerbic and vibrato-free like Milstein, the phrasing is delightful (no one could ever claim she hasn't thought through, note by note, what she wants to do); the rubato is judicious. The mellower Chaconne makes it in some ways more enjoyable (you'll never want to sit through listening to the Milstein twice on the same day! but you can repeat the Hahn again and again), though the highlights in this recording are the Sonatas, not the Partita.
I have bought and given copies of this recording to budding young musicians as inspiration. (I'd only dare give the Milstein to those who are emotionally prepared - it should be "R" rated.) Hahn will be around a long time -- she'll get to do it again (Milstein's famous one he did when he was 54, I think, and recorded them again (less well) in his late 70s.)
Buy it. Put it away. Be prepared to take it out again to compare it to what she does when she's 40.
