Hilary's next

Coming up tonight on BBC Radio 3, and streamed throughout the coming week on site, is the Lebrecht Interview with one of the most self-possessed artists I have ever encountered.

Hilary Hahn, last year’s Grammy winner for the Schoenberg concerto that hardly anyone else dares to play, puts neither a note nor a hair out of place. We eyeballed for an hour in a studio in Liverpool, the shutters slamming down whenever the conversation touched on private life.

I don’t pretend to have got the measure of Hilary – she’s too smart for that – but you may form a bit more of an impression of what she’s about from listening to her duck and weave under a hail of questions.
