@bkeske Welcome back. Streamed the Hilary Hahn. Wow, that's quite an ethereal, empty, stark landscape those pieces evoke. What do you think?


I love those works. Ysaÿe was highly respected in his day, and it is surprising he not better known today. I think it is wonderful that Hilary saw a desire to re-introduce him in that 2LP set.

I find his compositions she recorded fascinating.

Of course, her playing is incredible as well.
