After Hilary Hahn's fully realized, exactingly phrased, beguilingly executed performance of Goldmark's Violin Concerto with the Chicago Symphony last night, I overheard the following remark from a gentleman seated behind me: "She's not pretty, but she has an intelligent face." (If you've ever been upset by a critic reviewing a violinist's dress, read no further.) I don't know what standard of female beauty he was using, or whether he was trying to dissuade his wife from thinking he had the hots for Hilary, but come on! At the very least, a reasonable stratum of society, presented with the evidence, can agree that Hilary Hahn is pretty, except for that stratum located in Orchestra Hall LB 3 1/2 Row H, Seat 1. We can also agree that Charles Dutoit, while remarkably spry for a septuagenarian, is not pretty. These things seem pretty (rim-shot) cut-and-dried to me.
