Oregonian critic David Stabler singled it out on his list of fall's best musical events in Portland."Of the many musicians who have never played Portland, Hahn tops the list," Stabler wrote, characterizing her as "a terrific musician, wondrous fiddler and searching artist."
The 30-year-old Hahn, a two-time Grammy Award winner who Time Magazine has called “America's best young classical musician,” is a genuine 21st-century multimedia phenom: She regularly posts journal entries and information for musicians and concertgoers on her web site (hilaryhahn.com), produces a YouTube channel (youtube.com/hilaryhahnvideos) … and her violin case comments on Twitter about its life as a traveling companion (twitter.com/violincase).
Hahn will perform the perennially popular Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.
Also on the program: The Oregon Symphony premiere of "Phenomenon — the mysterious and unexplained," a short piece written in 2004 by rising-star Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen, as well as Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony, arguably the 20th century Russian composer's grandest creation.
