Extractions: Cover Story: Hilary Hahn - Violinist with a vision PSO opens new season with a bright, young star Friday, September 15, 2000 By Andrew Druckenbrod, Post-Gazette Classical Music Critic Hilary Hahn wants to personally thank you for listening. Pittsburgh Symphony PSO opens season with street party New faces in the PSO Hilary's 'Hahn-line' journal She doesn't say it in such a cheesy way she is 20 years old after all but the American violin virtuoso is doing her part and then some to help right the good ship classical. In a keynote address she gave this summer at the annual conference of the American Symphony Orchestra League in Boston, Hahn tactfully urged her fellow musicians to work harder to connect with audiences and offered tangible ways to do so. She advocated that artists look at "music television, the Internet, direct contact with audiences and programs for kids," while also maintaining they not be "reluctant to talk with the media." "To me, all of these activities on the part of artists are connected to the goal of breaking down barriers that keep people from coming to classical concerts," she said. "This isn't a matter of self-interest or egomania it's an effort to help with classical outreach." Hahn hasn't changed her tune since that conference "I think that there's a lot that [artists] can do that isn't too energy-consuming that would make a big difference," Hahn says over the phone. She'll put that theory into practice again this weekend when she performs in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's season-opening concert with music director Mariss Jansons. She'll play Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto in a concert that also includes Bela Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra and Ottorino Respighi's "Feste romane."

Extractions: HH : I was surely most influenced by my two teachers Klara Berkovich in Baltimore, from age five to ten, and Jascha Brodsky in Philadelphia, from age ten to 17. Both were very demanding teachers, but very kind, superb violinists: musicians of style and taste who allowed no technical shortcuts. I was extremely lucky to grow up under their guidance. HH : It gives young players and old ones, for that matter an opportunity to see that they are part of a long and very rich tradition of violinists, each of whom played differently, each of whom played effectively. And for those who are studious, it is a great resource for studying the technique of playing the violin. Nearly every school, every body type, every possible manner of holding the violin and bow is represented. GP : The filmmakers touch on the fact that the careers of some child prodigies were cut short due to the pressures of stardom. Is this a concern among contemporary artists like yourself, who have been in the spotlight from such a young age? How do you cope with the rigors of performing and being in the public eye?

Desktop WHERE: Benaroya Hall She has been talked about, as an immensely gifted violinist, since she was in her midteens, and already has played on a good share of the world's important stages. For once, Seattle has not had to wait to hear this kind of musician in the early stage of a career. Thanks to the enterprising and alert Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Hahn made her local debut more than two years ago and returned to appear with the orchestra this past spring. On Monday night at Benaroya Hall, Hahn made her recital debut, opening the symphony's Distinguished Artists Series. She proved she was adept on stage with only a pianist an excellent pianist at that, Natalie Zhu as she is with an orchestra. The program of Brahms, Bach, Mozart and Saint-Saens was hardly adventuresome, as one might think a 21-year old might be, but it revealed, in the main, the kind of gifts Hahn possesses.

She worked with him until his death in 1997; she then studied with Jaime Laredo. "Curtis is a very international place," Hahn says. "You're always around a lot of people from other countries.
