Hilary Hahn and Hauschka ~ Live Surprise Imrovisation at Nordstrom’s in Seattle

Hilary Hahn and Hauschka, not ones to pass up a great opportunity to make an impression on unsuspecting shoppers, put on an improvisational set at Nordstrom’s in downtown Seattle as a warm up for that evening’s show at the Neptune Theater. This is also a nice way to hear them without either the prepared piano effects or the electronic hookup Hilary has been using for the shows–Acoustic, and separate from the Silfra production-style sound.
Recorded 5/29/12

  1. That’s excellent! Usually Nordstrom’s has some schmaltzy piano players who attempt to play Take 5. Much better!

    • I’ve been to the Seattle Nordstrom’s many times before. I don’t think I could continue shopping if these two turned up and started playing.

  2. It’s funny, I thought I read “tuned up”, I was going to say I don’t think Hauschka tunes his pianos that much. 😉 Except this piano didn’t get the usual Hauschka treatment as they sort of did the more classical, less-indie version of the act.
