Since I am a dedicated fan to the New York, by way of Baltimore, by way of Lexington, VA-based violinist and have been a pretty good one for almost a decade now, at the risk of being extremely fanboy-ish, I thought it was time to post a special birthday Glass for Hilary Hahn (Wow, 32 already!), and include one of her greatest performances captured on film in its entirety, the Glazunov Violin Concerto.
I usually post endless videos to Facebook and Twitter, of course this year now there’s Google+ as well, so, there’ll probably be quite a few of those again, but I thought it was okay since this is my forum to simply make the great birthday wish greeting here and post a ginormous video at the same time.
BTW, has anyone ever noticed that Hilary shares a birthday with Jimi Hendrix? Could there be something to that? Two virtuosos born on the same date?
Happy Birthday, HH! Have many more!
(While we’re at it, Happy Birthday to Jimi Hendrix, too!)
