28-year-old Taiwanese-American VC Artist Paul Huang is quickly building an impressive international reputation for his eloquent music making, distinctive sound and effortless virtuosity.
A graduate of The Juilliard School, Paul is a former 1st prize winner at the Tibor Varga International Violin Competition Sion Valais – and was recently awarded a prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant and 2017 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists.
His recent solo engagements include debuts with Houston, Detroit, Baltimore, Grant Park, North Carolina and Pacific Symphonies, Lucerne Festival, Berliner Symphoniker, Seoul Philharmonic, Taipei Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan.
‘Big, luscious tone, spot-on intonation and a technique that makes the most punishing string phrases feel as natural as breathing … he is definitely an artist with the goods for a significant career,’ The Washington Post recently wrote.
He currently performs on the 1742 Ex-Wieniawski Guarneri del Gesu – on generous loan from Chicago’s Stradivarius Society.
