Review: Paganini – Violin Concerto No. 1 / Hahn

Niccolò Paganini (1782 – 1840)
Violin Concerto No. 1 in D major, Op. 6


Hilary Hahn is making history as we speak: this classical music recording puts her among the top violinists in the world.

An astonishing performance unlike any existing one, especially with regard to form, intonation and musical insight of the violinist.
