Hilary Hahn is out for longer

The violinist’s agency announced in late July that she’d be out for six weeks with muscle strain, causing her to miss the summer festivals.

Unfortunately, her recovery is slower than expected.

Hilary has cancelled Baltimore’s season opener and more. She does not expect to be back before October.

We wish her well.

UPDATE: Statement from HIlary’s agency: ‘With great regret, Hilary Hahn has canceled her concerts for the coming month on the advice of her physician. These withdrawals are crucial to allow her to recover fully from a muscle strain. Ms. Hahn will resume her performances later in the fall.’

In San Diego she has been replaced by the concertmaster, in Dallas by the newly-minted American Augustin Hadelich.


  • Rgiarola says:

    She will miss also Atlanta opening night at the end of September. Already replaced by Jeremy Denk in Atlanta and Pinchas Zukerman in Baltimore.

    We hope she will recover very soon!
