I received this CD set yesterday and have been playing the discs, one after the other, almost constantly since their arrival.
Yes, it is a 2 CD set and represents fantastic value for money.

Miss Hahn has recorded 27 Encores.
Her pianist on the recordings is Cory Smythe.
They have been superbly recorded at the Teldex Studio in Berlin.

The informative booklet tells us that Hiliary Hahn has long been interested in the Encore and decided that it would be fun to have some more modern examples of the genre in addition to the old chestnuts which have been around for so long.
She therefore approached 26 composers and asked them to write a short work, stipulating only that it should not exceed 5 minutes and be written for acoustic violin and piano.
For the final 27th encore of the set she launched a contest and selected a piece that she thought fitting to complete her recital.

Only one or two of the 27 listed composers were known to me.
The music, as you would expect from totally different composers, covers a wide spectrum.
There are many very technically demanding pieces which the violinist Hahn (and indeed pianist) play with great virtuosity.
There are other much quieter, almost dreamy pieces which are beautifully contrast the more energetic works.Listen to the 9th encore, entitled 'Farewell'. It will bring a tear to your eye.
The 27 encores have been skilfully placed over the two discs to make listening a real pleasure.
Often a whole CD of 'lollypops' can tire with repeated listening but that is not the case here at all.

All in all a wonderful collection of encores, played by one of the most talented artists currently performing.
Highly recommended.

This 2-disc set represents a simple idea, very well executed: just organize a number of sponsors and get a bunch of living composers to each write an “encore” piece for violin and piano that lasts around five minutes. Then take those out on a well-received tour and record them for posterity on the prestigious Deutsche Gramophon label. Many of these composers most people including me wouldn’t have heard of beforehand and for a number of them this will have been their first exposure on disc. The fact they had to write for Hilary Hahn’s violin and Cory Smythe’s piano means these are all proper compositions as well, there’s no hiding behind thick orchestral layers or ambient “non-music”. One of the nice features of modern art music is that it’s not just men who were asked and able to deliver a good encore meaning that, out of the 27 pieces (26 commissioned plus the one selected via an internet competition), 9 are by female composers. This and the fact the composers come from all over the world and represent a variety in styles that really stretch the concept of “encore” turns this into quite an exhilarating collection. And musically interesting as well, only a few pieces (like the ones by Mason Bates, almost like country-music and by Jennifer Higdon that closes out the first disc) come close to the kind of flashiness one might expect when hearing the term encore. The great opener by Franghiz Ali-Zadeh is a case in point; she obviously took this commission very seriously and produced a full-blown composition in multiple parts, telling a highly dramatic story.Read more ›

I bouight this after hearing a couple of samples being played on BBC Radio 3. I'd expected before hearing the samples that it would be very tonal, but as the title they are very enjoyable and highlighting her versatality.
