I’m actually pretty impressed with their description of Hilary! I’ve read presenter ad copy about her far worse than this. It’s quite well-written and accurate, actually. Maybe I’ll start reading Playboy for the articles.
Who she is:
A serious-minded violinist who isn’t afraid to find partners outside classical music
She’ll play a Bach partita and then join Josh Ritter for a duet, but
for all her adventurousness, Hahn is still an appealing all-American
girl. Her first album was entirely of solo Bach works, which showed she
meant business, and she recently scored an iTunes hit with Arnold
Schoenberg’s crunchy Violin Concerto. If classical music needs its sexy
librarian, we recommend Hahn for duty in the stacks.
Meanwhile, I will be waiting by the telephone until the magazine runs a Naughty PR Girls of Classical Music piece.
Update! September 16, around 11:30 am – OPERA CHIC endorses dark horse candidate Hahn for Sexiest Babe of Classical Music! Eat our dust, Netrebko.
