‘I distinctly heard someone shout “Erlkönig! Erlkönig!” I knew they were asking for Heinrich Ernst’s Grand Caprice on Schubert’s great song. It’s a unique piece, so I decided not to play the encore I’d been planning and went for that one instead.’

Violinist Hilary Hahn performs Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst’s Grand Caprice on Schubert’s Der Erlkönig, op.26 – a work she discusses as part of The Strad’s Encores feature, published in the April 2016 issue – download on desktop computer or through The Strad App.
