  • Simply amazing!

    I'm not going to pretend to be some internet blogging music critic. Nor do I have any experience with Classical Music. What I do know is this. This young lady is an amazing musician and her playing is beautiful, haunting, ferocious, heart warming, uplifting, chilling, etc., etc. ! Put simply, I love this compilation and am thankful to Ms. Hahn for opening my ears to Classical Music.
  • Want money back!!!

    With this album, Hahn's technique is showcased along with the orchestra and the Shostakovich (Concerto in A Minor) especially shows the different techniques used as is required at her level. She really ups the ante with these concertos.

    I am rapidly becoming a huge fan of Ms. Hahn. This recording displays a wonderful, sensitive yet playful reading of the Mendelssohn violin concerto. 4 out of 5 stars because of the hyper-speedy tempi. The final mvt just doesn't sound right at this lightning-fast speed, as thrilling as the technical pyrotechnics are… Allegretto non troppo, please!

    Hahn somehow manages to make one of the most angst ridden, painful pieces of music ever writen sound pleasant and happy. This is not a positive thing. Shostakovitch Violin Concerto No 1 should bring you to tears not out of the beauty of the notes, but of the pain of war torn Russia. The Cadenza especially should make you wail and rend your garments. Her performance is upbeat and chearful, lacking none of the emotion the composer intended. Compare hers to performances like David Oistrakh and the contrast is staggering. Hahn is a meal of water and white bread, bland, tasteless, and unfulfilling.
  • HAHN IS AWESOME!!!

    I am not so well acquainted with Mendelssohn, but I do quite like his violin concerto here. The Andante especially was very lyric and beautifully played. Hahn's violin playing is in my opinion perfect technically, musically, and emotionally. She makes the virtuosic violin part sound effortless in any recording I've heard from her, which is amazing!! I am more familiar with the Shostakovich, as he is one of my favourite composers of all time. Her playing of the A minor concerto is POWERFUL!!! Just superb! I loved every second of it. She also seemed to give proper emphasis to the DSCH motif. I had the feeling that she played without any emotional restraint, which I think is very important, and hard to pull off, but she does amazingly! This is a very powerful and moving album, and you need to buy it!!
  • UNBELIEVABLE.

    The tempi she takes are out of this world. Her presicion is unprecedented and her expression is perfect. Everything about this recording blows my mind. The Shostakovich is especially incredible.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
