Hilary Hahn appears regularly with the world's elite orchestras and on the most prestigious recital series in Europe, Asia, Australasia, and North and South America. In addition, she has toured the United States, Russia, Canada, Sweden, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Israel, Great Britain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, Scotland, Croatia, China, Japan, and Korea as guest soloist with many of the world's top traveling orchestras. Recent recital tours and solo concert collaborations have taken her throughout the United States, Canada, Brazil, Peru, Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, Denmark, Switzerland, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Japan. In the 2010-11 season, Hahn performs in fifty-six cities across four continents.

In the dozen years since she began recording, Hahn has released twelve feature albums on the Deutsche Grammophon and Sony labels, in addition to three DVDs, an Oscar-nominated movie soundtrack, an award-winning recording for children, and various compilations. Her latest album, Higdon & Tchaikovsky Violin Concertos, was released on Deutsche Grammophon in September 2010. The disc features the world premiere recording of Jennifer Higdon's Pulitzer Prize-winning Violin Concerto, demonstrating Hahn's commitment to exploring new music while embracing the masterworks of the past. Higdon developed an intimate familiarity with Hahn's impeccable artistry after serving as the virtuoso's twentieth-century music professor at the Curtis Institute.

Hilary Hahn was born in Lexington, Virginia, in 1979. At the age of three, she moved to Baltimore, where she began playing the violin one month before her fourth birthday in the Suzuki program of the Peabody Conservatory. From the age of five Hahn studied in Baltimore with Klara Berkovich, a native of Odessa who taught for 25 years at the Leningrad School for the Musically Gifted. From 10 to 17, she studied at The Curtis Institute of Music with the legendary Jascha Brodsky-the last surviving student of the great Belgian violinist Eugene Ysaye-working closely with him until his death at age 89. Hahn completed her university degree requirements at 16, but she deferred graduation and remained at Curtis for several more years, taking additional elective courses in languages, literature, writing, and drama; studying chamber music with Felix Galimir and pianist Gary Graffman; and coaching regularly with Jaime Laredo. She graduated from The Curtis Institute at age 19 with a Bachelor of Music degree.
