Hilary Hahn Performs the World Premiere of “Impulse” by Franghiz Ali-Zadeh in Rio de Janeiro

During the course of her South American concert tour, the American star violinist Hillary Hahn will present the world premiere of Franghiz Ali-Zadeh's new work “Impulse” on 11 September 2012 in Rio de Janeiro.

Together with the Chinese pianist Natalie Zhu, Hahn will perform this chamber work, completed in 2012, at the Teatro Municipal, one of Brazil's most beautiful and important opera houses.

Four days later, on 15 September 2012, the work will be given its Ecuadorian premiere at the Teatro Nacional del Sucre in Quito.

The encore piece "Impulse" is part of Hilary Hahn's cycle “In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores”. The violinist had turned to various contemporary composers from whom she requested contributions. The individual encore pieces will be premiered by the violinist successively until the end of the 2012/13 season and then recorded on CD. Lera Auerbach is also one of the composers commissioned in advance by Hilary Hahn for this major project.
