About This Program

Approximate length 2:00

Two contemporary innovators present music from their free-spirited and ambitious release Silfra (2012). With a flawless technique and a knack for razor-sharp performance, the prodigiously talented American violinist Hilary Hahn is known for her probing interpretations, technical brilliance and commitment to new music. Hauschka is the alias of classically-trained German pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann, whose work as Hauschka is based upon a playful exploration of the ‘prepared’ piano. Like Hahn, Hauschka is no stranger to collaboration, whether with formal outfits or acclaimed bands like Calexico and múm.

Co-presented with Schubert Club Mix

This event is currently SOLD OUT, though some standing room tickets will be available for $15 at the door.
