Leonard Slatkin has made a career out of finding treasures of repertoire that few others are playing but which everyone would profit by hearing. His partner here is the fabulous Hilary Hahn, who'll play Glazunov's powerful Violin Concerto.
Way W. of Torrance, CA was this week's encore contest winner. Way correctly identified Hilary Hahn's encore as the Sarabande from Bach's Partita No. 2.
