Hilary Hahn will be the recipient of the Herbert von Karajan Prize 2021
Star violinist Hilary Hahn will receive the prestigious Herbert von Karajan Prize on Saturday, 30 October 2021, during the orchestral concert of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden conducted by Daniele Gatti.
“Karajan was definitely a touchstone for me, musically”, Hahn says. “I grew up listening to a lot of his recordings. He was one of the big names, an established giant in the field.” The violinist has a special relationship to Salzburg. “The city really feels personal. It’s a place that has empathy with music. History, energy and environment all combine to make it special to play there.”
Hahn will play Mozart's 5th Violin Concerto as part of the "Easter Festival in Autumn". Special feature: listen to Hahn’s own cadenzas that she composed during lockdown.
