I was told by my music teacher many years ago, that the longer one listened to classical music, the smaller the ensemble one would enjoy. I am 60, and have reached the string quartet and soloist stage. I have enjoyed Bach's music for solo violin and cello for years, and play the viola transcription of the cells suites myself for enjoyment. I have several versions of Bach's solo violin music, and value Hilary Hahn's interpretations above all others, most especially her interpretation of the Chaconne. I believe this is one of the great compositions in western music, and I have heard no better performance than hers. It is difficult to put into words exactly why, but this is a critic's task. I suppose it is due to the combination her wonderfully deep and intense tone and precise articulation, but it is also due to the magic of her own interpretation of this great composition. I have listened to this track many times, and never cease to be deeply moved by it, as well as the remainder of the music. Six stars for this track alone. The other tracks rate five easily, for the same reasons.
