Guest: Hilary Hahn, Grammy-Winning Violinist, album “Retrospective” out Jan. 19 World-famous, Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn caused a stir last year when she hopped on Instagram and told her 70,000 followers: “Hi everyone, it’s Hilary, I’m speaking quietly because I’m in a public space. I’ve decided to put a short video of my practicing every day.” #100daysofpractice was her take on a global effort to do something creative daily for 100 days. As promised, Hahn posted short videos daily practicing in closets and offices and dressing rooms and sometimes outdoors. To see a violin virtuoso doing scales and drilling small parts of music and even getting frustrated sometimes was a revelation to her fans.
