Hilary Hahn, the American violinist, is about to release a new cd of music by JS Bach, called “Bach: Violin and Voice.”
We’ve talked about Hilary Hahn before on the show. After all, she’s one of the most new-media savvy classical performers out there. (Remember when her “violin case” started its own twitter feed? She was definitely ahead of the curve on that one.)
Anyway, in honor of this new release, Hilary Hahn is offering to answer questions from her fans, via YouTube.
She’s set up a special email address, and she’s promising to record her answers on video, and post them on her YouTube channel, this coming Monday, January 11th.
Oh, and she’s also holding a “Bach Party” at the very cool New York nightclub le Poisson Rouge.
So if you’d like to interact with Hilary Hahn, electronically, send her an email to the following address: email@example.com this week.
The album comes out in the US this Tuesday; the Canadian release is a week later, January 19th, on the Deutsche Grammophon label, but we’ve snagged an advance copy, which we’ll share with you today on In Tune!
