Musicians in Their Own Words: Hilary Hahn

At 24, Hilary Hahn has already recorded landmark violin concertos with the world's great orchestras. She describes the meditative experience of playing Bach alone — and of trying to sound like a bird with an orchestra.

A new release from Deutsche Grammophon pairs Hahn with the Violin Concerto of Edward Elgar in The Lark Ascending, by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Features in the series are produced by David Schulman and NPR's Jeffrey Freymann-Weyr.
