New Releases: Hilary Hahn's "Paris"

We celebrate the latest recording from American violinist, Hilary Hahn. It's called "Paris," and it features Hilary, joining an ensemble she has a long history with,  l'Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, led by Mikko Franck. Hilary loves Paris, and each of the selections on the album has a connection with that city, including the two serenades by Finnish composer, Einojuhani Rautavaara, dedicated to Hilary Hahn, and here featured as world premiere recordings.

After more than 25 years of teaching music, theater and English in San Francisco schools, Jim relocated to Spokane in 1995 to become organist/music director for St. Augustine Parish on the South Hill. Since around 2004, with the help and patience of Verne Windham, he has been able to realize his long-standing dream of doing radio. Jim specializes in classical music, but also can do the occasional jazz show. Jim and his wife, Carol, fill their free time caring for llamas, rabbits and chickens after having watched their two children grow up and leave the nest.
