Vinyl LP pressing. Hilary Hahn's distinct stylistic choices honor the traditional violin literature while delving into the unexpected. In recital tours across the U.S., Europe, and Japan in 2016, she premiered six new partitas for solo violin by composer Ant?n Garc?a Abril. The works were Hahn's first commissioning project for solo violin and her first commission of a set of works from a single composer. Garc?a Abril was also one of the composers for In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores, Hahn's multi-year commissioning project to revitalize the duo encore genre. Her album of those encores won a Grammy for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance in 2015. Garcia Abril: 6 Partitas is the world premiere recording of these remarkable Partitas for solo violin. Following in the footsteps of Bach, Ysa?e and Ernst, Garc?a Abril's Partitas continue the rich tradition of composers writing a set of six polyphonic works for solo violin.
