His musical education began as a treble soloist with the Graz Boys Choir and led him at age 11 to study piano at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, where he also completed his studies in conducting and correpetition.[1] His family comes from a non-musical background.[2]

Hahn gave his professional debut as a conductor in 2014 with the Orchestra of the Hungarian State Opera in Budapest sharing the stage with Piotr Beczała and Ferruccio Furlanetto at a gala concert on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Austrian-Hungarian border.[3] In the following years he had debuts with major orchestras such as the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Munich Radio Orchestra, the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne, the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, the NDR Radiophilharmonie, the Tonkünstler Orchestra Niederösterreich, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, the Israel Chamber Orchestra, the Camerata Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orquestra Simfònica de les Illes Balears, the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn, the recreation - Grosses Orchester Graz, the Opéra de Rouen Normandie, the Bavarian State Opera Munich, the Hamburg State Opera, and the Tyrolean Festival Erl.[4]

With a performance of Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 by the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra in the spring of 2019, Hahn became the youngest conductor in the big hall of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg.[5] His Japanese debut took place in the summer of 2019 on tour with the Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa and Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii as well as French trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin Vary.[6]

Continuous contact with the field of opera as a treble soloist led him to write his first composition at the age of 12 - the opera "Die Frittatensuppe", which was premiered in 2008 under his direction in Graz.[1] As a composer and arranger he has published music with Tierolff Muziekcentrale (Roosendaal, the Netherlands) as well as Helbling (Rum/Innsbruck).[8]
