Hailed by The Washington Post as “an artist with the goods for a significant career,” and praised by The Strad for his “stylish and polished playing,” 22-year-old Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang is already recognized for his eloquent music making, effortless virtuosity, and compelling stage presence. Among his honors are First Prize of the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and First Prize at the 2009 International Violin Competition Sion-Valais in Switzerland.
Pianist Louis Schwizgebel’s performances at the 2013 Verbier Festival under the baton of Charles Dutoit impressed with “fresh and lively energy and beautiful mastery of the instrument” (Le Temps, Switzerland). The new French record label Aparté has just released “Poems,” piano music based on poetry, including Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit, and a group of Schubert-Liszt transcriptions. Upcoming engagements include concerto appearances with L’Orchestre National de Lyon, the London Philharmonic, and in the U.S. with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, and the Fort Smith Symphony.
