Internationally renowned since her teens, violinist Hilary Hahn is one of the most prominent and widest-ranging artists in classical music today (and a longtime Washington Performing Arts friend and collaborator), devoting equal passion to her interpretations of Bach and to the championing of new works. She is also one of today’s most accessible and relatable artists, giving her ardent fans on social media a behind-the-scenes look at her often-grueling practice process and more. Her musical mastery and her accessibility will come to the fore in this recital in the intimate setting of the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater, where she is joined by ​two fellow virtuosos: the genre-spanning Seth Parker Woods, “a cellist of power and grace” (Guardian); and German-Swiss piano master Andreas Haefliger, famed for “sonoristic and expressive nuances that not many others care to explore” (Gramophone).
