The Essential Hilary Hahn is part of Sony's critically acclaimed 2-CD Essential Series.
A promising, all-American teen-aged prodigy only a decade ago when Sony Classical signed her to an exclusive contract, violinist Hilary Hahn quickly became one of classical music's superstars. The public and critics alike were dazzled by her incredible artistry, combining spectacular virtuosity and charisma with bristling intelligence. Her recordings include the mighty masterpieces of the concerto repertoire - from Beethoven and Mendelssohn to Stravinsky and Bernstein - and a thrilling ride through Bach's formidable unaccompanied violin music.

This is a compendium of previously released material played by Hilary Hahn, master violinist.
It's not often that one can recommend a particular Classical CD for both the Newbie and the Venerable Virtuoso as well, but in this case, I can joyfully do so without fear that anyone will be disappointed.
I was a little concerned when I first noted that the periods of music played here spans about 300 years -- I get "moods" to hear particular Classical periods; however, someone did an outstanding job of selecting music that, somehow, all comes across as compatible and fluid from one track to the next. So, that hurdle was overcome, at least for me.
There are some very fine orchestras and renditions represented on this 2-CD set and, on a couple, Ms. Hahn plays her violin solo, unaccompanied, and I cannot say when I've heard more moving pieces of beautiful music.
The second big caveat that made me so high on this album is that you rarely hear many of the fine works played here. I was bowled over by the second track of Disc 1, which I THOUGHT I had not previously heard, until I looked at the insert: "Andante", from Barber's Violin Concerto, op. 14. The fact is, I just had never heard this piece performed in such an INSPIRATIONALLY SUPERB MANNER and it had simply never attracted my attention before as it did in this case. In fact, all the entries are on that scale of excellence.
The clencher in listening to this, and to other Hahn entries is that her playing sets one at ease. These are difficult scores and Hilary Hahn plays them smoothly and, so fluidly as if she WROTE them herself.... masterful!
So, if you're looking for some violin wallpaper while reading a book or having supper, or, if you simply wish to have a fine Classical music experience, I can say without doubt that you'll not be sorry that you added this one to your collection.
If you acquire this CD set and you agree with my assessment of her brilliant renditions, you'll probably also want to grab this one as well: Elgar: Violin Concerto / Lark Ascending

Review by James Leonard [-]
Listening to this disc, The Essential Hilary Hahn, one can easily understand what everybody hears in the young American's playing, to wit, the ebullience of her Preludio from Bach's Third Partita, the passion of her Andante from Barber's Violin Concerto, the intensity of her Chaconne from Bach's Second D minor Partita, the expressivity of her Allegro non troppo from Brahms' Violin Concerto, the ferocity of her Scherzo from Shostakovich's First Violin Concerto, the poetry of her Allegro ma non troppo from Beethoven's Violin Concerto, the charm of her "Movement II" from Meyer's Violin Concerto, the exuberance of her Allegro molto appassionato from Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, the wit of her "Agathon" from Bernstein's Serenade, and the sprightly charm of her Capriccio from Stravinsky's Violin Concerto. Accompanied by the ardent Hugh Wolff and the Oslo Philharmonic in the Mendelssohn and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra in the Barber and Meyer, by the elegant Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in the Brahms and Stravinsky, by the masterful David Zinman and the Baltimore Symphony in the Beethoven and Bernstein, and by the powerful Marek Janowski and the Oslo in the Shostakovich, Hahn's performances are the current cutting-edge of charismatic virtuosity. Fans of Grumiaux may not approve, but fans of Heifetz will understand. Released between 1997 and 2002, these performances should be heard by anyone with an interest in contemporary violinists.
