Ravel, Sibelius, Beethoven

Violinist Hilary Hahn is famous for combining virtuosity with soul. Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto, along with those of Shostakovich and Berg, is among the most important violin works of the 20th century.

For Hahn and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, this meditative, dancing concerto is an expression of its time in the same way as Beethoven’s Fifth was, whose motifs hammer out the spirit of humanism to this day.
