Hilary Hahn is one of the most celebrated violinists to be heard today. In her long-awaited return to Sydney, her stunning virtuosity finds its perfect pairing with Simone Young as conductor.
From its haunting opening to its blisteringly intense moments, Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No.1 was an early triumph for Hahn as her turbo-charged technique captivated critics and audiences around the world.
With its dramatic highlights and tender melodies, Tchaikovsky described his Sixth Symphony as “the best thing I ever composed or shall compose.” Who better to conduct the work than Simone Young as we continue to celebrate our return to the Concert Hall.
