Classical Notes

Hilary, Arnold, and You!

Posted at 11:14 AM on September 5, 2008 by Gillian Martin (1 Comments)

In this election year, I suppose I should clarify: that's Hilary Hahn, Arnold Schoenberg, and you.

Arnold Schoenberg's birthday is coming up next week. In honor of it, Amanda Ameer and her blog Life's a Pitch will have an interactive, ask-violinist-Hilary-Hahn-about-her-recent-best-selling-recording-of-Schoenberg's-violin-concerto on-line/video event.

Find out more about it (and see Herr Schoenberg looking especially festive) here.

(Thanks to Classical MPR web guru Monique Francesca for the tip.)
