Hilary Hahn

Wednesday: Some child prodigies crash and burn upon reaching adulthood. What's there to do when you're no longer cute and you hate your parents for pushing you out onto the concert stage? If that's a rule, then violinist Hilary Hahn, who will play a recital in the Schubert Club's International Artist Series at the Ordway Center on Wednesday night, is an exception. Hahn played her first recital at 10 — 25 years ago — the year she entered the Curtis Institute. Her career since then has been one triumph after another — two Grammys, the Artist of the Year Award from Gramophone magazine and a Pulitzer Prize for the concerto written for her by Jennifer Higdon. Wednesday night, in a typically wide-ranging program, a collaboration with pianist Cory Smythe, Hahn will play works by Bach, Schumann and Ravel along with samples from her intriguing recent recording "In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores," for which she commissioned new encores from 27 prominent composers. Tickets may be scarce. (7:30 p.m. April 15; Ordway Center, 345 Washington St., St. Paul.; $16-$75. 651-292-3268.
