Bios:

One of the most exciting young violinists of today, Paul Huang was recipient of the prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the 2017 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists. As the Washington Post proclaimed, Paul Huang offered (a) “wide-ranging and consistently compelling recital …a big, luscious tone, spot-on intonation and a technique that makes the most punishing string phrases feel as natural as breathing.” 

Taiwanese-American pianist, Helen Huang, was first discovered by Maestro Kurt Masur upon winning the Young People’s Competition resulting in engagements with the New York Philharmonic and a recording contract with the Teldec record label. Known for immaculate technique and eloquent sensitivity, Ms. Huang has enjoyed to date a multi-faceted career as a soloist and chamber music player.

Together – they’ll take us to another planet!
