Paul Huang, violinist

“Paul Huang, the star of the evening, confident and smiling, showed a precocious and magical talent.
The young man is radiant."

- Le Nouvelliste (Switzerland)

Biography   |   Downloadable Materials    


First Prize Winner of the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the 2009 International Violin Competition Sion-Valais in Switzerland, 21-year-old Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang is quickly establishing a reputation for his eloquent interpretation, fiery virtuosity, and commanding stage presence.  As the recipient of the Helen Armstrong Violin Fellowship of YCA, Mr. Huang debuts this season in New York at Merkin Hall and Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, both in the YCA Series.

 

Mr. Huang appears as soloist with the Hilton Head Symphony, the Louisville Orchestra, the National Taiwan Symphony and the Bilbao Symphony in Spain, and in recital at the Buffalo Chamber Music Society, the University of Florida, the University of Alabama and at the Tannery Pond Concert Series.  Mr. Huang also performs in Korea at the Great Mountains Music Festival and on a tour with violinist Gil Shaham in Europe with the Sejong Soloists.

 

Other international performances for Mr. Huang have included appearances as soloist the Budapest Dohnányi Symphony, the National Symphony Orchestra in Mexico City, and twice with the Taipei Symphony; recitals at the Stradivari Museum in Cremona, Italy, the National Concert Hall in Taiwan, and at the Museé du Louvre in Paris; and at music festivals including the Mineria Music Festival in Mexico City, the Moritzburg Festival in Germany, and in 2009 and 2010 at the Sion Music Festival in Switzerland.

 

As a chamber musician, Mr. Huang appeared as a guest artist with the Formosa Quartet at Wigmore Hall.  He has collaborated with notable instrumentalists such as Shlomo Mintz, Nobuko Imai, Roberto Diaz, Jan Vogler, Myung-Wha Chung, and Frans Helmerson. 

 

Born in Taiwan, Mr. Huang received his first violin lesson when he was seven.  At 14, he entered The Juilliard Pre-College in New York where he continues to work with Hyo Kang and I-Hao Lee.  He received the 2008 Juilliard Achievement Award and the 2009 Chi-Mei Cultural Foundation Arts Award for Taiwanese Most Promising Young Artists.  Mr. Huang’s instrument is on generous loan from the Chi-Mei Cultural Foundation in Tainan, Taiwan, which supports Taiwanese young promising artists of exceptional talent and ability by providing precious antique instruments to the performers.  He is extremely grateful for the opportunity this organization has given him to play on such an outstanding instrument.
