Hilary Hahn - Occupation: Wunderkind.

Over to Hannover Germany this week for a live as-it's-happening concert by the North German Radio Philharmonic conducted by Eivind Gullbert Jensen and featuring the American violin sensation Hilary Hahn in music of Mendelssohn and Bruckner.

Hahn and the Orchestra run through the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in the first half (the top player). And then the orchestra resumes (after the break) with the Bruckner Symphony #4 (Romantic) (the bottom player).

Good concert, good crowd, good music. Notes are below:
