She intersperses Paganini and Bach into her concerts with singer-songwriter Josh Ritter, while on CD, she pairs Schoenberg with Sibelius and Tchaikovsky with a 21st-century work. For this solo Tiny Desk Concert, Hahn does it again - J.S. Bach and Charles Ives, side by side.<b>--from NPR</b> Thu, 26 Sep 2013 01:45:15 +0000 NPR Music 3263 at http://wrti.org Watch and Listen: Violinist Hilary Hahn Plays Bach and Ives Violinist Hilary Hahn Performs With The Philadelphia Orchestra on WRTI: Sunday, Sept. 29, 2 PM http://wrti.org/post/violinist-hilary-hahn-performs-philadelphia-orchestra-wrti-sunday-sept-29-2-pm <p style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: medium; line-height: normal;">Yannick Nezet-Seguin is on the podium this Sunday at 2 pm in a recorded concert from this past May, which featured Hilary Hahn&#39;s return to Philadelphia for Korngold&#39;s Violin Concerto.

Bartoli lavishes extravagant attention on the music of a fascinating but forgotten link in the history of opera.
