Still don't really dig her interpretations of romantic works, but dang.
December 18, 2018, 7:32 PM · I am at least as impressed by what a good sport she is as I am by her mad skillz!
December 18, 2018, 9:08 PM · I hope she gave those young men lessons while she was there. Even though they're both pros they probably would have appreciated that.
December 20, 2018, 2:45 PM · I love her! I didn't know much about her, but I watched this and some of her performances and I think she's amazing. Goes to show what hard work can do! :)
Edited: December 21, 2018, 7:36 AM · What shoulder rest is she using, is it a Bonmusica?
December 21, 2018, 10:16 AM · This is great on so many levels :)

Amazing that Hilary Hahn is prepared to do something like this on camera. Amazing that she can play music of that level with flair and musicality at no notice and with random conditions. Great as a way of spreading the idea that 'distraction practice' is an actual thing (which it is).

Also GREAT for my assorted Facebook friends who occasionally post about how classical players can only play with the music.... lollll

She is a fantastic violinist, and this just proves how technically proficient she is, even with all of Brett and Eddy's crazy challenges! :)
January 7, 2019, 6:17 AM · Brett and Eddy ... is that a play on Bert and Ernie?
January 7, 2019, 12:07 PM · My favorite part of this video is the Lindsey Stirling imitation.
